TWO BIRDS ONE STONE
MetadataShow full item record
Barns and related structures are the second most common building typology in Norway, and the tradition linked to them are of great cultural historical value. Sadly, research indicate that 25% of them are either empty or not in use, and their future seems uncertain. What is the potential that lies in these abandoned agricultural buildings? By doing research on one existing situation, answers to this question may be found. “Kronmo” is an old empty farm in Tolga that has lost its initial function. Only by finding a new purpose the barn can once again become an important element to the surroundings. Through the process of renewal, interesting situations will occur when old cultural history meets the requirements of a contemporary lifestyle.
