COAST - Collective Architecture Studio
COAST is an architectural photography and research studio specializing in the representation and study of the urban environment. COAST is founded by Rasmus Hjortshøj, architect, photographer, and PhD-Fellow.
Through architectural photography, the studio portrays the work of leading practices and institutions in the field of architecture and their oeuvre of novel architectural design and urban solutions.
Through territorial photography, the studio engages in the visual mapping and aesthetic framing of the territories surrounding the built environment with field reportages and visual mappings, aiming to open new avenues for understanding and engagement in territories in a state of criticality.
Through research and design, the studio engages in a variety of collaborations in practice and academia. COAST argues that the aesthetic framing of both the objects and territory may help identify challenges and novel solutions relating to physical transformation processes in the intersection between architecture and the environment. Focus is particularly drawn to the coastal territory where the urban fabric superimposed on dynamic landscapes often disregards the natural forces that remain the premise for human settlement - bringing to attention a lack of negotiation between dynamic territories and urban intervention.
A variety of approaches, media, and collaborations all gravitating around the built environment. A collective architecture.
