"Achitectonic Additions in Churches". A historical study of architecture with contemporary connection in Sweden

Caroline Olsson

The scholarship at The Swedish Institute in Rome enables architectural studies, which started during my last year at The school of Architecture in Lund. I wrote an essay about Härlanda church by architect Peter Celsing, in history of architecture, and as my Master's Degree I draw a church. A study trip to Rome was part of the work, where I studied early Christian churches.
Through the scholarship I reconnect to the churches of Rome with focus on changes of spaces over time. The reason to my subject choice is that there are current projects in Sweden and the best way to learn how to move forward is to study the history. I will study how architectural changes have been done during different periods of time.
The results will be presented as short film collages where film sequences will be put together with drawings and complementary texts.
I’m an architect and interior designer with my own company; Speaking Concept.
The Degree of Master of Architecture, Lunds University LTH 2002 and
Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Interior Architecture and Furniture Design, Konstfack in Stockholm 2004.
