ENGAGED AND SECLUDED We need somebody to imagine the yet impossible. Dare to dream and envision a new direction and provide guidelines for new ways to relate to community, urbanity, and landscape with our built environment. We need to question and explore terms, moves, materials, and tendencies in order to be able to propose far-reaching alternatives. These Diploma projects are thoughtful in selecting urgent topics; they carry through comprehensive analysis and explorations and propose brave new spatial responses. They are valuable in the architectural discourse- far beyond the built. While this year’s Diploma semester has forced a challenging component of seclusion, an active withdrawal has to some degree been the case for the Diploma process, also in previous years. Part of the semester has usually been a self-chosen retreat at school to create momentum with less interference as the concentration and amount of work and dedication demands this lack of disturbance from the surroundings. This year put another awareness on the consequences of solitude and seclusion and the desire for interference, collaboration, and joint action. When the Diploma students could again leave their home-based studios the role of the school as a place not to withdraw but to connect and be part of an overarching project discourse became evident.

Cecilie Andersson Rector, Bergen School of Architecture

Anyhow, although being results of work during the pandemic semester, these Diploma projects are not at all done in a vacuum, they are not aloof or detached from the situation they are relating to. They are fuelled by interest and involvement in how we shape the physical premises for individuals and communities, and in various ways, they have found approaches to engage with the situation in direct dialogue with both site and people. This is an attitude that has always been important at BAS, but it is proof of strong personal will to witness it to such a degree also this year. We should appreciate the effort even more as the students have managed to find ways to interact and work spatially despite the physical restrictions caused by COVID 19. The Diploma projects are rich, complex, and manifold and not meant to be shuffled aside once assessed. When there this year is no physical exhibition, we hope you use the opportunity to wander into the many digital platforms and curiously access the works to find the many paths, directions, and modes that have informed the projects. This year everyone can add to their CV that they have coped well with sudden changes. Both the students and everyone involved in the process have contributed with flexibility, extra time, and effort. The administration, the tutors and the assessors have in impressive ways accustomed to the new sudden orders. Together we managed and the Diploma projects are there to show how this moment in time came to be a setting for new agendas in architecture. On behalf of the entire school, I wish to congratulate the new architects with immense effort and great results! 5

THE RADICAL FUTURES CLUB FOR THE REORGANIZATION OF MATTER Our organization deals with the radical future of the material world. We experience matter as a part of what we are and what surrounds us - our lungs, a wall, a forest, a cloud. As bodies we are organizations of material relating and acting on other material. Our shapes are temporary and constantly being reorganized. With time matter travels through networks of buildings, food, plants, people, animals and machines in eternal cycles. When we act with the material world we often plan while things happen unpredictably. In constructing a building, we first imagine its potential future. The constructed future is immaterial, and exists differently within imaginations. The present is the touchable time and what happens, as it happens, occurs in matter. Through material reorganization we affect rhythms and processes in and around material. Our reorganized material acts through time - becoming cultural heritage sites, pollution, food for termites - sometimes retaining its shape for a long time, sometimes dissolving but always changing in a complex way unique to its time and place.

To act with matter in the present, in its complex relationships, in its environment, do we need a radical approach to planning? Is there a way of preserving multiplicity and allowing non linear incidents and relations? Planning the future through the study of past events can offer change, but not radical change. Even though repeating an action in a shifting world is different every time, we argue that the ambition for a truly radical future needs to be higher.

BO;LAB An ongoing master vision on new, alternative ways of living in a cultural landscape. A living lab preparing for an alternative future. My project is a master vision for Vibrandsøy. The masterplan includes activating the island and create a community, similar to how it was a hundred years ago. My project will result in a society that offers an alternative way of living than in the city. The idea of this island becoming a «showcase» and inspiration for greener living is central, especially given the placement along and in proximity to the city. This will be a society where people can live more simple - in micro houses - as long as they contribute to the community by working there. In other words, the community will be circular in two aspects; it is run by itself - partly self-sufficient with food (vegetables from the cropland) and electricity, and also the people living there circulates, as people live at Vibrandsøy as long as they have work on the island.

KINDERGARTEN Enhance learning and destress through play The kindergarten is situated in Lone, Bergen. The new kindergarten is adjunct to the existing old Lone School. I used knowledge from neuroscience to get a deeper understanding of how we humans interact with our environment and how it affects us. For example, how do children orient and navigate? Surveys show that kindergarteners have a high cortisol level, which indicates that the children feel stressed. Stress does affect our capability to learn. Prolonged stress will affect the development of the brain. How can we make a kindergarten that is destressing and enhancing the child’s trust and capability to learn? In Norwegian kindergartens, the curriculum is teached through play. The architecture should be a driving force and facilitate learning, and this through play.

Home base: Each home base has a furniture wall with a small kitchen and a door to the next home base. The round windows are low and deep so the children can sit in the window swill. Tables and chairs are in the size for a child, - less lifting for the adults and the children are more independent. The big window out the common space makes it possible to make use of both spaces simultaneously.


19


KINDERGARTEN

Program: One condition from Bergen municipality is that the kindergartens built should be based on the home base model. A smaller group of children belongs to each a home base, and themed rooms and common rooms are open for them all to move through, as they like.

Four characters, both in shape and material.

“Four characters” : In the common area, there is four small buildings in the building. Each with their own character, both in form and use of material. From left: Wool character, wood hut, metal – slide and nursery and polycarbonate shed. In this way, the children are exposed to various of forms and materials, and the buildings gives identity to the space around. 20


Wardrobe: One condition from the Bergen Municipality is that Kindergartens built today should also function after kindergartens opening hours, as well as being flexible to different usages after closing. To keep the children’s identity and privacy safe one closes the wardrobe cabinets when the kindergarten is open for the public.

Model collage.

Wayfinding. As for wayfinding one can navigate by the ceiling, it is slightly different angles throughout the common area and one can see most of the ceiling whenever one is standing. Moreover, in front of each home base the area is treated differently with the “four characters�. By these differences, the child will be able to gather cues, create memories and relations to the space. 21

HOLMEN Translating the Norwegian governments aim for social integration into a new work and activity centre The project is a new work and activity centre in a re-used school building in the municipality centre of Bømlo, Norway. I aim to translate the Norwegian governments’ goal for social integration by re-thinking co-location of municipal mental health care offers. It is each municipality’s responsibility to provide work and activity offers for people with mental disability, mental illness or people otherwise on pension. Yet, there are no governmental guidelines or regulations as to what a work and activity centre should contain. The government’s main goal of the centres is to offer any form of employment for the users and facilitate social integration and normalization. Today, many municipalities in Norway colocates offers for people with mental illness, substance abuse problems or mental disability. I believe that segregated offers within mental health care increases stigmatisation and social segregation. If co-location is to happen, it should be done in a new and different way. Context:

Holmen Work and Activity Centre will connect people through production and work training, physical and social activities. To avoid stigmatisation by segregated offers within mental health care, I aim to include programs and users from various social groups, without a hierarchy of programs for mentally ill or disabled. The design of the new work and activity centre transpires from the different users’ and their needs. From the body and mind and to the interrelation between users, local community, built environment and nature.

DISRUPTIVE SPACE An( )other insight into learning spaces Disruptive Space is a multi-layered approach to education and architecture. As architects, we are responsible for designing learning spaces, yet most of us are unaware that education is a factor in today’s society and its social order. The project will be an extension of an existing school that already operates with an alternative pedagogy by using keywords such as autonomy, citizenship, creativity in their way of teaching. The process brings a discourse and understanding of the classroom model and learning spaces to the architecture community. But it also brings the architectural discussion to its users as it all started after the essay with workshops with students from the school to understand two ideas: their daily life and the atmosphere they are seeking. With those ideas, there is a possibility to set up a new base to look at schools instead of replicating corridor and classroom that forms our childhood memories. The goal is to lift the quality of life in the school and, hopefully, the curiosity of its user.

The final result is no finality but a more a prospect to engage a discussion with those who seek to change schools. It is neither the greatest nor the most revolutionist idea but more a purpose to tackles what has been done countless time.

REKINDLING SØREIDE’S SEASCAPES A contextualized restructure of the bay and new public ”forsamlingshus” at the forgotten coastline of Søreide The main intention of this diploma is to transform a center, which lacks the ability to connect. It is about new connections, infrastructure and new public services. A fast growing center that today is ”not planned” and constructed to get away by car, than to actually staying and meeting. A small community with a beautiful shoreline that has chosen the road and roundabout as the center. My project includes sketches of three new public buildings and bridges also. But most of all the idea of transforming the village of Søreide into a social, sustainable and functional unit connected to its landscape. Søreide is located 20 minutes south of Bergen city by car, and has around 5,000 inhabitants and around 13,000 who use facilities such as schools and shops. Søreide is lays in the end of the Grimstadfjord and functions today as a suburban center. This is also the place I’m from. Context:

IMAGINING A DISTANT PLACE An observatory in another world In Oslo theres an observatory no longer in its original use as the tools are ruined, not only because of light pollution which has filled the city. The telescopes are over a hundred years old and have become museum objects. The observatory have been for a long time a place for instruments. A building for scientist and their explorations. Today a place to show these instruments and educate school children about the laws of physics. The building it self or the surrounding site dont create a strong relation to outer space, neither is the building taking apart in the local context. Its forgotten, hidden and rarely used. The city surrounding it is filled with life, food, flowers, sounds, smells, street signs, lights, cars, markets, shopping malls, taxis, skaters, fountains, birds, metros and everything that makes a vibrant city.

I wish to create a space where the city is left behind, where you truly can let your senses focus on whats out there, not here. Whats within you. A place where the space you are in creates the emotion triggered by being in outer space. In the day its a space to look at clouds, have a break from the loud city, listen to the heavens or potentially go on a concert, skateboard with friends or take a run. In the night you will sometimes see the stars.

DYING IN AN INSTITUTION OR LIVING IN A HOME The nursing home is dreaded by society, and is considered an undignified and demeaning place to live, and yet, we continue to develop these places as segregated institutions with an extreme focus on efficiency rather than on the humans living there. The project is based on a desire to see a considerable change in the future practice of nursing homes - a change that acknowledges that frail elderly are not waiting to die, but that they are, still, very much alive and also living. With many institutional buildings situated in central residential areas, the project aims to show how an existing, obsolete building could be transformed into a home for elderly and into a place for enriched life - both for the elderly living there, and for the community around. The main endeavor has been to create more distinct contrasts between private and public situations in order for the residents to perceive the new place as a home.

LIMINAL LANDSCAPES Three ports in transition Liminal Landscapes uses the tools of time and space to investigate liminality through the metaphor of a port.Human productivity has been shaping the environment for centuries, leaving behind scars in the landscape. In this project the countless docks along the Norwegian coastline are representing our built environment.

Three case studies illustrate three different methods of approaching unproductive infrastructure. The liminal state of the ports has the dormant potential of being transformed. In this diploma project three different approaches are suggested. These propositions make a gradual variation going from a careful addition, over a renovation, to the method of subtracting. We believe that the port has a strong impact to its surrounding landscape. It is crucial to understand the original purpose and the historical importance of the place. All of these aspects are woven together in the liminality of a port. Therefore our intentions, as architects, will interact with these places through a respectful approach. In Tellevik is a place that is liminal in space. A bathing house will be balancing between the water and the land; acting as a lantern for the local community and the visitors. Skjelanger is liminal in use; a flexible ownership will allow the place to open up for the public. The port of Veløyna is liminal in time; a dialogue between the concrete of the port and the landscape reveals potential of the reclaim of nature through time. The interventions touch up on the surfaces of ownership, appearance and the voice of the landscape. The ultimate goal is the challenge and change the attitude towards how the environment has been claimed.

REMEMBRANCE Excavated sequences of rock, daylight, forest and water A partly hidden crematorium with religious neutral ceremony spaces in Bergen. When asked only half of the Norwegian population claims belonging to any kind of religious belief. This opens a discussion on the current offers of ceremony spaces for funerals in Bergen which is mainly Christian churches and chapels. Could ceremonial spaces be perceived in a broader context beyond religious beliefs without completely losing the notion of being sacral? The sensual world of rituals and its meaning in our culture should not be underestimated. Perceiving the final farewell is a direct and physical experience.

An appreciation to the value of natural elements as architectural expression and a common impression of nature itself as a mediator in addressing the notion of sacredness across beliefs and non-beliefs.

A CONSTRUCT FOR SOFT POLICING WITHIN AN URBAN VISION I wanted to understand the police as a living organ in our communities, questioning its way of interacting with the anatomy of the city. This by understanding how the citizens and police interact, connect and communicate with each other to secure and reduce the possible threshold between. I observed that many police buildings may be characterized by an absence of accessibility and presence within the urban context.

With this project I wish to facilitate an urban integration of a local police contact in Slettebakken Bergen. Located in an collaborative environment with other social actors of importance, as a instrument of welfare. This to specifically work with preventive measures directed towards the needs and care of the local community. I am therefore endeavouring to create new spatial patterns for communication between people. By attracting the local population to a multi-functional public space and bringing together diverse sections of society, the aim is to create a sense of tolerance, awareness, identity and mutual respect. In this context I believe the presence of the police as participants on an equal level to other sections of society will humanize the urban space. Patterns of communication between police and the public may be found within principles of humanizing and softening the urban space, shaping environments for human connections, conversations and invitation to interaction.

To change the ideas of authority controlling our society, the police contact office is located on the ground floor with a transparent connection to public spaces. This to encourage a lower threshold to initiate contact and interaction.

MAKE USE / RURALIZED Converting the use of one building in order to alter the path of a depopulated town With this diploma I was trying to find ways to work with the topics of depopulation and climate change in hopes of finding ways of development outside our current economical system, based on growth. As an investigation, the project aims to see how a ruralization of the town Sollefteå would look like, basically shrinking the town center through the mounting down of empty facilities, and in this way opening up for a new use of both land and materials. I wanted to create a local material chain for reusing materials, and a transformation hub (maker- space & workshops); to collect the building mass efficiently, reuse it and make new structures from it, or send it to other parts of Sweden that are growing.

How can the human interaction with reusable materials manifest in a physical form, is there a way of getting people to reuse and utilize local materials instead of buying new? Will people start investing in their existing buildings if building materials are free? Could this actually be a way of getting new-comers to town and let them be a part of a more rural life?

SHOAH RECOLLECTIONS Contemporary commemorative architectural representation of the Holocaust in israel We are nowadays nearing the unique moment in time, since the end of WWII, when the final holocaust survivor passes away. Alongside with the demise of the last survivor, we will lose any possibility for a tangible, first-hand human connection to this major historic event. Our memory balance would necessarily shift from the “possibly personal” to the “inevitably collective”. My thesis digs exactly into the relations and tension between the personal and the collective memories of the holocaust. In my work I try to offer a possible answer to the question of how this changing reality should contextualize a new holocaustrelated discourse in Israel, and how it would in-turn affect its commemorative architectural representation.

Context:

My intention was to expand the canvas of representation by planning an Israeli holocaust memorial that would not reproduce or reinterpret the familiar approaches and gestures of existing holocaust memorials in the country. I wished not to impose any ever-present, top-down narrated memory, and wished not reflect the atrocities and genocide; rather, I wished to bring onstage fractions of memories from individual victims and their lives, and fortify these memories by accompanying architectural performance. My experimental memorial consists of both tangible objects such as flora and rusty steel, in combination with intangible elements such as light, shade, colour, smell and ambience. The effort was made to produce a coherent phenomenological experience: a place and space where the cultural aspects are derived from the sensory perspective of the built environment. “Vestiges of Time”, inside the Light Hall

PUBLIC CONDENSER A common ground for the communities of Askøy The site is located within the pier and seafront area in Kleppestø on Askøy, an island on the western coast of Norway. In the current land use plan the site is set aside for a public building with cultural functions and a square with limited access for motorized vehicles. In a larger context there is planned a center development for Kleppestø as a regional center. Structures on the island for community purposes were built by local initiative. Many of these are small, in need of maintenance, and technical upgrade towards todays standard. There are no offers for recreational activities for youths not involved in organized after-school activities on Askøy To create new spaces available for the public where people can meet, recreate, socialize and interact. The intervention aims to contribute towards the vision of shaping the pier area in Kleppestø into an attractive, active and environmentally friendly center area for the whole of Askøy.

Cristian Ştefănescu (APP) Marco Casagrande (DAV)

Taking advantage of the sites close proximity to the main traffic junction on the island, making it easily accessible for the whole island. During daytime, activities in the public condenser will be targeted towards the elderly. After school hours the public condenser will be dedicated to the younger population. Where they can join with scheduled activities in one of workshops, or just hang out with friends.

62

For the overall public square area I envision a place that can be used for outdoor markets and public events. A canopy that will provide a sheltered area for all the outdoor activities, in a town where it rains 200 days of the year.

A FUTURE IN RUINS Exploring the possibilities for a new wave power plant and a visitor centre at Toftestallen With two thirds of the earth’s surface covered in water, ocean waves represent our planet’s last untapped natural renewable energy resource. The waves hold tremendous amounts of energy. With this project I want to explore the possibilities for a new wave power plant at Toftestallen in Øygarden. Besides being profitable for Øygarden municipality, this will be a place where people can observe and learn about wave and ocean power. My proposal consist of 3 autonomous power plants (2 new plants, and 1 to be restored). In addition to this I want to create a new view point and a visitor centre where people can enjoy the site from a sheltered atmosphere The plants are meant to be a prolonging of the existing landscape. Not invisible, but shaped in a functional way. Both in terms of wave harvesting, but also in a way that makes people want to observe and interact.

A sensory room, a multi use room that can host conferences, art exhibitions, and other happenings. An open area that functions as an extended flexible room for events in and around the building. A museum and observatory - a walk through the history of the site, the past, the current and the potential future development. My project aims to maintain the way people use the site today, and to facilitate for other activities as an open public space. A chance to explore the site through both new and old structures.

SOCIAL INCLUSION & INTEGRATION The process of redefining the identity of reception centers in Norway Reception centers are the first places for asylum seekers when they arrived in Norway. It represents the value of humanity that how Norwegian society treats outsiders who are looking for support. During the long process of waiting for the result in the reception centers, architecture is in a crucial position to support asylum seekers to keep positive thinking and to help them do not lose their identity.

The idea is to renovate the existing reception center which needs to be considered a new home not the institution for asylum seekers. In the limited budget, how to build a reasonable and homely environment to encourage asylum seekers to escape from depression in the long process of waiting is the main mission of the project. Besides, the new type of reception center should be opened to the public which gives the functions for the public using and make the opportunities to let asylum seekers interact with local people, then, to understand each other deeply. The invention will base on the interview with people who are living in the reception centers in Bergen and some employees who are working in the reception centers to get the insight what are the problems of the living condition here. The new reception center is a place for everyone and also a place to encourage asylum seekers to have hope for their future life. Through the daily social interaction in the community, asylum seekers are building up their new identity in the home called “Norway�.

ECHOES IN SPACE The entanglement between space and time - an exploration Space, the substance that bears echoes; Echo, the power or even soul of space. The project [Echoes in Space] is an exploration of the entanglement between space and being. It starts from the phenomenon of spatial echoes, through researching a)what are spatial echoes, b)how does space join this process, c)its relationship with being, d)how could it create/define a space, trys to understand little bit more about space and being, so as reflect the present design methodology. Cross-field tools and site practices are the main working methods. As a whole, it’s an explorating map made up of each small step.

LIFE OF WATER The project is intended to evoke a reverence for nature and a reminder of the cycle of life. It proposes to reimagine a new form of dwelling. The architecture is designed not only as a shelter for a three- person family but also as vessels that water performs or influences. This dwelling is located in a remote natural environment, near a mountain lake, which has four distinct seasons. This project is centred around a narrative including five moments happening in the dwelling - from spring, summer, autumn, winter to spring. Each moment unfolds several fragmentsa stage of this family, a part of their lifestyle, their perceptions or actions water triggers, water effects on architecture, nature phenomena process. As time spreads out, it tells evolvements, interactions, and relations throughout the presence of water among three interdependent and interrelated entities- humans, built environments (vessel), and natural environments (water). Together it reflects the oneness of water, a recurrent essence of ourselves and surroundings. This project is a manifesto to see architecture as water, in a state of flux.

REFORM TO MUTUALISM A beneficial action in the historical heart of Bergen The compact area of Vågsbunnen was once the heart of Bergen in the medieval past; filled with life, markets, trade and craftsmanship. Vågsbunnen is today a vivid area, though it inhabits some abandoned spaces with unclear use; like the quarter of Hans Tanks. Despite that the surrounding streets are filled with different programs and cultural institutions, this specific quarter draws our attention to the creation of urban void-treated with lack of respect towards its history. Furthermore, the whole quarter is owned by two different investors and suffers the risk of becoming a private and inaccessible island in the middle of Bergen. Due to new development plans from the owners that threaten to eliminate the distinctive atmosphere that exists in the quarter, we see the need to initiate a negotiation of the space, to keep it public as it historically was.

As a response, this project aims to explore the potential of Hans Tanks Kvartalet as an inclusive and friendly quarter of Bergen. By opening up the two backyards to one space with public use, it will increase the access and reinforce interaction. The intention is to turn the interior backyards inside-out, making the programs of the surrounding buildings turn towards the yard. Consequently, the buildings have no backsides, and the yard will be activated into an urban square. Moreover, the empty school buildings will get a public cultural program in the shape of a food court, connected to the existing cultural drivers and programs in Vågsbunnen.

ENLIGHTENING MINDEMYREN Exploring Kanalveien 90: Bringing together a new school campus and the local community – an urban continuity My project is focusing on the possibility of the new NLA (Norwegian Teachers Academy) campus to become a part of the local community. Focusing on shared programs and space: School activities and extracurricular activities / recreational activities. Today the area has no community center, but there are a lot of activities going on in temporarily rented spaces in the old NRK buildings at Mindemyren. My intention is for some of these activities, to coexist with the school’s other activities. The buildings were originally built as a bread factory in 1956 and later radically changed on the inside by NRK. Therefore, as well as incorporating the NLA academy, the buildings will be restored and opened up in order to invite the public and surrounding area into the domain of the school. The continuity and connections between inside and outside are an important focus in my project.

LOVE STORIES OF A PLACE We all are storytellers, and our imagination is colored by the stories we tell, are told and believe in The thesis aims to address the power in storytelling, to emphasize the constant flux between the imaginary and the place itself, and how the image of a place and the physical place mutually reinforces an identity. A place should be read as a living multilayered character; temporary and plastic rather than static and fixed. The project focuses on how to generate spaces motivated by interpretation of love as a resource for design. Ideally it goes beyond ideology and political statements as it looks at the place itself as the main actor. The ancient village Lifta, Israel which is the area I chose to work with, is a contested territory which unfolds a symbolical richness where acting upon love allows for greater possibilities. I want to draw a vision for a place of tolerance, a place to negotiate. I argue that futility of function is one of the architectural qualities of the remains in Lifta. The spaces were made for a specific purpose, yet they have changed over time, what has not changed is the spatial qualities they host. Context:

Cristian Ĺžtefănescu (APP) Andrea Spreafico/ Tom Chamberlain (DAV)

I am doing this to mark that it is too narrow to understand the cultural and historical value of a place only in the material remains of ancient constructions. Rather, to engage spatial practice in any given place, one has to understand the complexity of context and the layers of humanity, intangible and emotional modes of ownership and belonging to a place.

90

By gaining awareness of how identity is altered in the meeting between humans and a physical place, one becomes aware of the power within the spatial.

ECHOS OF YESTERDAY, SEEDS OF TOMORROW A school in nature I found a site in Åsane. A hidden gem in a concrete jungel. So rich on life in all forms that I instantly felt a strong connection. In this site Bergen county is building a school. They plan to bring in 7000 truckloadsof filling mass to lift the terrain and create a large one volumed school. Their reports say that the landscape isn´t special, and it will not be of large negative impact on natural life to do this. They are wrong. I have engaged with the local community. The forrest kindergarden, the kindergarden, neighbors, parents, elderly and the children. When working 1:1, a small boy came to me and asked ”Where shall Jonny Dear live when you build something here as well?” I had no answer, but reflected on the great understanding children have for their environments, and how we so often undermine and neglect this aspect.

Tutors:

A small green gem giving them freedom to learn, understand and fall in love with where we come from. A gem that soon will be taken away. What signals are we giving children when we dominated nature in this manner? How will they relate to nature when they see how easily a grown man chops down a 100 year old tree?

94

My project aims to find a balance between building, understanding and relating to the landscape. Creating an atmosphere where children can not just learn about nature, but in and with nature. Using the landscape as an extended classroom without boundaries. Free for the children to explore and fall in love with. Not on our premisses but on theirs.

SHIFT HABITATS Shift our lifestyle habits for our future habitat Longyearbyen, Svalbard is a small town on Spitsbergen Island, Norway. It is one of the places on earth where the effects of climate change are more extreme and are already showing. The housing situation in Longyearbyen becomes uncertain because of the permafrost thawing and the ongoing landslide risk. What does it mean to inhabit such a changing condition? Inhabitants have to adapt their habits because of the climate change situation. What will be the new model for inhabitants a strategy? of integrated safety and technology to decrease the rate of climate change? Could a new habitat typology be a role model for living sustainability globally while adapting to local climate conditions? Does extreme climate make a lot of difference to other places in terms of living conditions and activities?

The current shift in Longyearbyen is a plan to stop the coal mining industry and move to other professions. At the same time, to seek new building techniques for houses threatened by the permafrost melting. The town needs to rethink lifestyle habits and to become more environmentally aware. Including the consideration of the use of materials, energy, and protection from landslides. Nevertheless, reconsidering different habits, needs to take account of the social aspects and to value and maintain local knowledge. The shift in strategy is also to restrict the growth of tourism to the available existing facilities and to promote the support of a more permanent population working in research, conservation and improving quality of life.

THE CITY CARPET AND URBAN LIVING ROOMS The main goal for this project is to work towards the idea of “byromsnettverk” - a network of urban spaces, or in this case a network of urban living rooms. Well-designed urban spaces operates as the glue within a city and will help smaller cities, like Sarpsborg, to become a more vibrant and inclusive place. The promotion of urban life, activities and architecture will work as a pull factor for locals, visitors and businesses. The concept of “byromsnettverk” will be explored through three different actions; the reweaving of the carpet, unifying exciting “zones” and by learning from the living room. 1. The carpet, the materials of the ground, is today well designed as a “Hollywood carpet” with the purpose of getting someone from point A to point B, but how can this existing carpet interact with the idea of the “living room carpet”, the carpet that we gather around? The reweaving of the carpet, existing and new materials woven together, will create a pattern of new ways of motion.

2. The zones of the site are places that today are mainly used and designed for the car, and they have a great potential of becoming places that will bring better quality of life to the city, both for urban and local users. 3. The living room is the room within our home for general everyday use, and it is the place where we gather together. How can the living room be translated into urban living rooms? Can we learn from the way we use the space, the placement of furniture or just from the concept?

SCATTERED CLUSTERS How to live closer together and closer to nature For more than fifty years the de facto model for new homes in rural Norway has been single-family homes in housing developments in or close to rural centers planned mainly for technical infrastructure with fenced in plots with isolated houses without community. The diploma proposes an alternative through scattered clusters. The project draws inspiration from clustered farms, not mainly as a typology but as a model for social interaction, social inclusion, and residents working together and helping each other achieve common goals through sharing of spaces and resources. The chosen site sits on the border of the forest and former farmland. A common situation in rural areas, where much arable land has been going out of use as farming has been rationalized. This is often meadows and species-rich grasslands that support a huge range of wildlife, including the important pollinating insects, like bees. The diploma proposes a site strategy that includes restoration of the cultural landscape where the meadow becomes a shared space for the community, with the participation in restoring and maintaining it creating a stronger sense of belonging in the community. Context:

My architectural response to this situation reflects the rural aesthetic of the surrounding agricultural vernacular, utilizing a simple wooden construction, where columns meet the ground and adapt to it rather than the adaption of the ground so common in housing developments. The dwellings include all necessary functions, while at the same time benefitting from multiple shared spaces. They have a defined private side in the closed forest and a public side towards the open meadow. An inner solid services core inspired by the stone fences of the site defines this border.

REVITALIZING LIFE AT THE DOCKS A urban vision for a publicly available seafront The Skoltegrunnen and Bontelabo area are located at the north side of the entrance to Vågen. When standing at the tip of Skoltegrunnen you have full visual control over both byfjorden and Vågen. The area has for many years been a site with fishpacking, goods handling and passenger traffic as main activities. Today the area functions as Bergens main cruise ship and offshore vessel quay, appropriating approximately 1,4 km of seafront in close proximity to Bergen centrum. The building mass on land is mainly used for office space, storage and activities related to running the port/dock. As it stands today the area offers little to nothing to the inhabitants of Bergen. Bergen City has about 20 km of seafront where only 30% of it is publicly available. The 30% or 6km of publicly available seafront is quite fragmented and it is in many places impossible to navigate along the seafront for longer stretches. A lot of the available seafront are basically just gaps between buildings. The gaps can be quite nice to walk by and look through out on the ocean, but the majority of them are not facilitated for longer stays and public life. Context:

UPSTREAM Reimagining the collective dream of a city The project is an investigation of the potential use of public space in the city of Førde. The project is framed by the desire of the inhabitants for a more pedestrian-friendly city, that invites to use and enhances the natural qualities of the city. The first phase of the project investigates the highly car-centred infrastructure and organization of the city, and it results in an urban strategy that will allow a pedestrian friendly “pocket” within the boundaries of the city-center. The second phase is a reaction to the use of public space in the city, that is often occupied by parking-lots or inside a shopping-mall. The result of this phase is a public library, that aims to emphasize the connection between the south and the north areas of the city-center, and nevertheless to function as a democratic social arena for the inhabitants of the city.

ARCTIC SHELTERS Investigations into alternative accommodation at the North Cape This project takes place at the northernmost part of mainland Europe, the island of Magerøya in Northern Norway. Each year the island is visited by several hundred thousand tourists. A vast majority of these tourists come to the island to visit the North Cape Plateau. At the same time, Magerøya has more to offer. The island has a unique arctic climate, animal wildlife and a bizarre and violent history. This makes Magerøya an island where one may experience lots of interesting things – but many people seem to be unaware of the possibilities. The intention of this Diploma is therefore to present proposals for infrastructure that facilitates an alternative way to experience the island closer to nature, but also to be able to control the destruction of nature to a certain extent.

The shelter serves on a free-for-all basis and shall be open at all times for those in need. At Langnes the proposed solution is a small accommodation with facilities for overnight stays for small groups of people, to be served on a book-to-use, short time basis. The objective is to locate it close to historic sites, but also close to wildlife populations without causing disturbance to animals or cause harm to the historic locations or nature.

From this window you look directly out to the sea. Here you can observe the activity of different animal species in water and on land. In the horizon you can see Gjeesværstappan which is a spectacular bird mountain. The midnight sun is at its lowest in the north. Here you can lie in bed and watch the sun move over the horizon and give a wonderful light. But in the next second the wind can blow up and rain or snow follows. From here one can observe the powerful waves but still feel protected by the bay the cabin is located by. You can hear the rain hit the glass of the window and the wind pass by.

Views of seemingly bare nature. But look a little closer and you will see a house. The house is one of five buildings left in the island after World War II. The area between where you sit, and the house was formerly a residential area where people lived as fishermen. Several elements of the landscape show sign of past life. Such as stone foundations, metal objects and traces of boat pits. The more you look, the more you will find.

Here the sun is at its highest. The window has an angle that guides the sun's rays along the ceiling and illuminates the room. From this window you can see a bare mountain landscape as far as the eye can see. From here you will be able to observe wildlife on land. Reindeer will walk around eating in the summer and if you focus on the sky you will probably see a sea eagle. If you want to experience the Northern Lights, this place will give you a relaxed place to lie in total darkness while waiting to see the magic light.

The west wall should protect against strong wind, rain and snow. This small window is therefore the only window on this wall. From here you can look out while sitting on the toilet. The window is angled to the south to point to a specific location in the landscape. If you don't know about it, you don't see it, but what you are looking at is the mountain where there is a cave. The cave was used by 16 people who hid from the Nazis during the burning of Finnmark and North Troms. A short walk from the cabin will lead you to the cave where you can see traces of bonfires and wood planks.

Window - South wall - Toilet

From this window, the sun will light up the upper and most important part of the room. You will also be able to monitor what is happening in the sky without anyone looking in. Different bird species will fly by or maybe the northern lights are in the sky and you can observe it all from the toilet if necessary.
