… “a key concept in creating solutions for a sustainable future…”
Four projects from Norway on display:
- Kristian August Gate 13 in Tullinløkka in Oslo is an adaptive reuse project transforming a 1950s building threatened with demolition, reusing and repurposing 70% of the existing materials.
- In the Festiviteten project, the firm restored an 1874 building, reintroducing it in the social landscape of Larvik, Norway.
- “Recipe for Future Living”, the winning design of a C40 Reinventing Cities competition, is an exploration of circular economy, sustainable use of resources and reuse at the scale of a neighbourhood.
- Woho is a timber tower that recreates the Kreuzberg neighbourhood in the form of a high-rise.
“We trust in processes and involvement through collaboration on all levels, and we believe that we, as architects and individuals, have an obligation to take part in the common ‘dugnad’ towards a sustainable future where people and nature can thrive.[…] Aware of the responsibility we carry as designers, we constantly question our work towards a deeper understanding of the complexity of the world we live in to find better solutions on how to tackle the climate and societal challenges we are facing today.” – Jonny Klokk, Architect and Partner at Mad arkitekter
