MetadataShow full item record
Imagine a space crowded with strangers, in a shifting moment of time they come together with a common purpose. Present in the same space, at the same time, for the same reason, these strangers co-exist; yet the shared space allow a maintenance of privacy and solitude. The ambition for this diploma came from the desire to explore the relationship between public and private space. How they sometimes intertwine, in special ways. The intention was to investigate shared spaces, with a focus on intimacy. To make a public place where someone can exist as an individual, while having a mutual understanding with the other inhabitants that they co-exist in the same space. The project address both public and intimate spaces outside the private sphere, in a neighborhood library close to the city centre of Oslo.
