Architecture

Home / Learning / DKS / Architecture

What can architecture say about the time it was built?

We walk through parts of Tollbugata and on to Drammens Museum to get better acquainted with the city's history. Several of the buildings are from the 17th and 19th centuries and the owners were often the city's rich merchants and merchants. How can we see it on the houses? What do they say about the owner's position and wealth? Can we see differences between facade and back? We get to know some important characteristics of the styles in which several of the buildings in Tollbugata are built.

After the city walk, the students get to play at the museum, where the questions are taken from the communication. The class brings the game to school.

Anchoring in the Curriculum

  • The goal is for the students to become better acquainted with the city's history and what the architecture can tell about the time and the people who lived then.
    After 7th grade in social studies, one of the goals of the education is for the student to be able to: "explore how people in the past made a living, and talk about how key changes in livelihoods and technology have affected and affect demographics, living conditions and living patterns."

Before the museum visit

  • Make a drawing of e.g. the front door or school gate, without looking at it in advance. Afterwards, students can go out and see what it actually looks like. This is to make the students aware of what the architecture around them looks like. Alternatively, they can make a "correct" detail drawing of the same motif afterwards.
  • Talk about the architecture / buildings in the school's local environment.

After the museum visit

  • Watch the film «Urban history walk from Strømsø to Bragernes with a focus on history, architecture and styles». The film is on DVD "Aesthetics in Public Space-Urban History Walking", produced by Drammen municipality and DKS.
  • Color drawing of Cappelengården (1767), which you saw in Tollbugata during the walk. Pay attention to the details around the windows and door. Feel free to draw something in the windows. You can also paste people, flowers, etc. that you have cut out of a leaf. Then you get a collage. The drawing of Cappelengården is located here and can be printed out and enlarged. cappelengården sketch_large
    Material: A3 sheet, pencil, colors, sheet, glue
  • Use an arts and crafts lesson to create and color the game you were given at the museum. You must have pieces and dice yourself. Print out ArkitekTur questions here:  Questions for ArkitekTurspillet
