Transforming and Adding to 0131 Sentrallager: Exhibition space for the Marine Museum archive.
MetadataShow full item record
The project aims to elevate the things and changes in time that I have found interesting and not cast them aside as unimportant to the history of these buildings, but to show them in either a new way or to bring forward that history as an important part. My aim is to look at the obvious parts to restore, but also bring forward to light the things we normally wouldn’t find valuable. 0131 Sentrallager is one of those buildings that people want to destroy because of its «grey» and closed facade without, trying to find interesting elements that do in fact have value. I want to elevate those values and propose a different outcome to this part of Karljohansvern. Karljohansvern is in the process of becoming a cultural arena for the inhabitants and the visitors of Horten. Through adding a new extension, exploring and translating architectural qualities and historical layers, I believe that this transformation would open up this part of Karljohansvern and make Magasin B and the storage building accessible for the public. Magasin B has been through many different phases throughout the years, and my project is a proposal for a new phase, that does not eraze the historical traces, but are trying to enhance them by adding to.
