Abstract This master thesis is a result of the work thas was done for my entry in the international architectural competition Urban spaces and urban life in Ørestad South, that was announced by Ørestadselskabet on the 31st of October 2006. The project work lasted from early November until the deadline on 14th of February. In addition to the proposal that was handed in, the master thesis consists of a number of reflections about the work that was done and design work in general. The proposal is an answer to a not that evident task. One would expect that the assigment was clearly defined in the brief of the competition like this. And so it seems to do but to define the real assignment and join your own aims to it from such an extensive brief can be quite time consuming. Why do architects participate and what is an architectural competition? How does the brief affect the choices and statements made by the entrants? What is a square? What is the strategy that leads to a convincing concept? The role and use of a concept in the design process. What choices were done regarding visualization of my ideas and what did these choices mean? These are examples of issues that I considered during the project which I within this essay intend to structure and put to further discussion. It is not at all about finding answers to the defined issues. Most of these issues will most likely remain and will be relevant for me in my future work. The purpose of this work has been to get to know strategies of working and my own ways of thinking during a larger project. I strongly believe this has given me a stronger basis for both future collaberations as well as individual work.
