LINDEPLASSEN

 

LINDEPLASSEN 

a temporary urban installation

We were engaged by Odda Municipality to transform a small square from a ‘concrete jungel’ to a ‘nice spot to hang out’ - in anticipation of the planned permanent upgrades

Two workshops were arranged to collect the needs and dreams of local residents. This insight was used to make the design - which became modular sitting units on wheels, so that the locals could arrange different spaces for the different needs.

Inclusive building - a tool for integration of refugees

When building the modules, we arranged a dugnad - which is a Norwegian term for voluntary work done as a community or collective work with long traditions in our country. We see our building processes as a opportunity to be an arena where different social groups come together and collaborate towards a common goal. In this case, we collaborated with the local Voksenopplæringa - which is the school where newly settled refugees attend. For three days, a group of thirty student helped us building the installations in addition to locals coming and helping out too.
