Egnebu in Vardø - with Sámi values as guidelines
MetadataShow full item record
The diploma investigates the relevance indigenous cultures have for sustainable design today, selecting the Sámi as it is an indigenous people in Norway. Choosing three values from my study of Sámi architecture, I developed a method of using these as guidelines for a design process. My case study is a fishing industry site in Vardø, working on both a strategy for the site and the design of Egnebu (fisher’s sheds). Does Sámi architecture contain values that are relevant and can aid sustainable design in Norway today?
