studyiinq  asked:

hi hi! I'd like to enter your studyblr awards, as well as ask what type of pens/notebooks you use for everyday notetaking (since I can't find any that I adore). Thanks again! x

Hi there, thanks so much for entering my studyblr awards!💛

pens/notebooks that I use on an everyday basis:


for school I use Pukka Pad 250 pages project books

- they are A4 

- they have protective covers on the front and back

- they have different sections and include plastic folders, so can be used for different subjects/ topics

for rewriting notes I use medium Agenzio notebooks

- you can get them lined or plain

- the paper is great quality

- they are reasonably priced


for writing things quickly (answering questions etc.) I use:

Zebra medium ball point pens 

BiC cristal medium ballpoint pens

- both of these pens are cheap and surprisingly good quality!

for writing notes (and making them pretty!) I use:

Staedtler triplus fineliner (black) + Staedtler triplus colour 

Stabilo point 88 fineliner pens 

Sharpie pen. 

- some of these pens are a little on the pricy side, but they all work very well and last long, so in my opinion they are worth it!

hope this helps!


Tekstiler Kvartal

Chris Dove / Thesis / Post Graduate Diploma / Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow School of Art / Glasgow, UK / July 2014

The Tekstiler Kvartal of Nørrebro  is located in the centre of a large urban block in Copenhagen. The blocks of Nørrebro are of an unusually large proportion, and used to contain industrial buildings at their centres which would provide work for the district. These centres were completely lost in a series of over zealous slum clearance in the 1960s. The thesis looks to reintroduce the idea of industry in the centre of a block, to form a new urban strategy for Nørrebro.

The Tekstiler Kvartal creates a situation in the centre of a block, consisting of two large industrial components that occupy the territory in the centre. These large glass and concrete components contain the spaces for recycling and making of the textiles into raw material in which young designers can use. An archive of textiles is established. The introduction of glass and concrete, into the centre of the block, acts as a new typology of architecture in the centre of the block. These industrial spaces are contrasted by a layer of smaller scale, studio spaces, which connect the industrial centre with the retail and residential edge of the block. The studio components of the Kvartal are of a solid brick construction, reminiscent of the traditional Danish typology in which it sit. The studios look to act as an intermediate element between the centre and the perimeter through the use of scale, materiality and the introduction of outside shared spaces. These exterior spaces act as a common ground between the industry and the residential edge, encouraging the integration of the public into the industry, and with it the reinvention of Nørrebro.
