Oslo, 2005


A cooperation with MAD in a limited competition.

The project illustrates that it is possible to live centrally in Oslo but still have good access to natural qualities. By establishing woods where there used to be asphalt the experience of the place becomes radically transformed; where there earlier were polluting cars and cigarette production there now will be an oxigene machine. New carres with diverse identities recycle the foundations of the industrial buildings that have outworn their purposes.

The urban situation is reversed, the private outdoor spaces are on the outside and the public space inside the carees.
