Out of the Blue. A nature-based armature for urban development
MetadataShow full item record
The project proposes a nature-based design strategy that addresses the urban challenges of flood, fragmentation and underused spaces to provide social connectivity in the Municipality of Lørenskog. A changing climate and a rapid growing city, has become highly problematic: Recently occurring heavy rains, causing flooding of the urban fabric. By taking the watershed with its flows and cycles as base for intervention, the project opens up a new approach towards the existing logics of urban expansion, exploring ecological infrastructure as place-maker within the wider territory. The city’s trouble is prototypical for the Eastern suburban area of Oslo and will serve as a spatial spine and conceptual entry point for future urban development.
