Innovation Center in Mandal
MetadataShow full item record
This is a proposal for an Innovation Center in Mandal, a coastal town in the south of Norway. The project builds on an interest for buildings that are both one and many-clear entities combined into a whole. This interest led to the choice of site and program;a site which is a collage-a patchwork of industrial buildings on a flat river delta. A program which is also a collage: work and education collocated to share knowledge and resources. The building has two main exterior spaces: one enclosed courtyard and one open towards the river.It consists of large spaces that are connected on two levels: a public ground floor and a secluded mezzanine. The existing buildings are incorporated with the aim to seamlessly make them apart of the whole.
