summary "The Masonry House" is an experimental building designed in connection with the building exhibition "Byggeri for Milliarder" ("Building for Billions") in Copenhagen. The house is intended as a collection of examples and did only exist during the week the exhibition was. "The Masonry House" contains examples of both old technology and attempts to show entirely new constructions and new ways of using masonry. The house is constructed as a combination of prefabricated elements, wall ribs, decks and walls, and of parts built on location, cupolas, stairs, etc. The building process with element assembling and construction had to be done in six days and demanded a precise Organization and coordination with use from shift work. The very house had been in process for quite a long time, but in connection with the carrying out and preparation of information materials the Datacentre at the School of Architecture was involved in the project. After having produced a spatial model of the house completed, the wish for describing the construction process arose; to produce a "spatial time schedule" for the use of workmen and to describe the process in an animation film for the spectators at the exhibition.
