My project deals with adaption and transformation in the stave churches during the period 1247-1723. Main points of interest include the practical execution of the transformations, attitudes towards the reuse of older building parts and the spatial qualities produced through the transformations. By studying the use of stave technique both before and after the reformation, I hope to shed light upon the dynamics between craft traditions, local community and religious developements.
My work is part of the interdisciplinary project "Systems of Knowledge in the Nordic Middle Ages".
