MetadataShow full item record
By decommissioning the military functions of the Andøya Air Station, the Norwegian air force is leaving behind an extensively transformed site, and a community facing an uncertain future. This project investigates how the manmade and natural materials and processes at play in this constructed nature can be harnessed as resources that instigate a progressive transformation of the site and enable planned and unforeseen future uses. This project envisions a recommissioningscenario that preserves and enhances the inherent and inherited values of the site. Through the implementation new uses and the reintroduction of historic activities in the landscape, the material and spatial resources of the site are reorganized to allow for a variety of users to reclaim the space of the air base.
