ANDALSNES MASTER PLAN PROPOSAL – ROLLING MASTERPLAN

ANDALSNES ROLLING MASTERPLAN

Our master plan proposal for the Norwegian city of Åndalsnes turns the old industry train tracks into a new kind of infrastructure for mobile buildings that can be rolled back and forth depending on seasons and situations. For example, we propose a rolling hotel, a rolling public bath, a rolling park and a rolling concert hall.

TROLLSTIGEN NATIONAL TOURIST ROUTE PROJECT

TROLLSTIGEN NATIONAL TOURIST ROUTE PROJECT

Located on Norway’s west coast, Trollstigen is perched within a dramatic pass between the deep fjords that characterize the region. This panoramic site can only be visited and constructed in summer, due to severe winter weather. Despite—or perhaps because of—the inaccessible nature of the site, the project entails designing an entire visitor environment.

A double curve shape follows the terrain and leads towards a beautiful untouched valley dominated by high mountains and eternal snow. Jotunheimen mountains are in the distant.
