2012 – A year in full

2012

When looking at the past year, I was not sure where to begin a summary. So much has happened in one year, it has been difficult to grasp. Then I realised, hey, I have a blog, and there are such things as post archives. Neat. That’ll get me started.
Briefly, 2012 has been a year of change for me. Loads of activities at the University, creative workshops and projects, excursions, internships and jobs.

The broken connections

Meanwhile, in Sortland…

What is a urban planning strategy that in essence creates an introverted and inaccessible town, where the natural foundations are at taken for granted, in practice ignored; connections lost, architecture randomised and most of the ideal locations for development regulated to industrial sites and/or parking lots?

LAA340 – Blue/green structures in urban areas

Sortland fra kaia

Course: Blue/green structures in urban areas. Destination: Sortland, Nordland, Norway.

Our area of study this semester is the town of Sortland, located in Vesterålen in Northern Norway. A town in expansion, as opposed to others in the region, this is a place set in spectacular surroundings; (arguably) competing with the tourism in the more “commercial” Lofoten.

Construction design, part 2

Visualisation in Lumion based on SketchUp model

We presented our site analysis today, along with some early attempts at visualising in Lumion (see picture above). A brief summary follows. See the project blog for more information!

Historical photo of the site, anno 1928. The tram line follows the same pattern today.

The site has an extensive history behind it, along with bits and pieces of architecture spanning over a century. The building in the picture, old Ullevaal theatre, now functions as a grocery store (actually, the grocery store is under construction) and auditorium for the University in Oslo, located just 500 meters to the North-West. Named after a significant tradesman of the time, John Collett, the area was a centre for trade and entertainment, with many small boutiques in the building, as well as a grand cinema. The site today is by and large dominated by traffic; it’s place you drive by, not a place you stay. The tram runs by frequently (twice every five minutes) as well, making the site appear very busy, however not necessarily in a good way. A place with great history, but a fragmented and dislocated feel to it today. Read the rest of this entry »
