You could argue that the reason a town becomes a town, is because of the relation between resources, people and factories. Our investigation of the duality between production and local community. A leap into a new type of industry and how coastal communities can benefit from town production. The facility combines production of seaweed and local food resources from the coastal district.The visitor center is placed as a brick in the town structure, while the production floor relates to the waterfront. By looking at processing space as adaptable production halls, several food resources can be processed simultaneously.Our interest is how the requirements of a production process can inform architectural space. Through the timber structure, you can see the reminiscence of seaweed.
