The V Project - EcoUrbanism, Bergen in Norway


Published on

In Bergen, Norway. Presents an illustration of a masterplan phase, how it could look like at streetlevel.

The starting point for this task was to illustrate densification in a historic environment with old wooden houses and existing shipyard and other industrial clusters.
The site is situated very close to Bergen city centre.

  2. 2. The cow drinks! • On a annual average, a cow in Norway produces about 6200 litres of milk • While eating about 50 kilograms of fodder, it drinks up to 60 litres of water – each day!
  3. 3. Nature is all around us, and it is important to be aware to CULTURE AND NATURE our dependence of it and how it affects us. It is difficult to understand nature LAYERS IN THE DAY when see ourselves as not a part of it
  4. 4. What happens when we are not a part of CULTURE AND NATURE nature? Well, we invent and we produce tools and things to help us, that break the logic of life. LAYERS IN THE DAY The logic of life you see underneath, captured in a plastic single-use cup.

  6. 6. political importance from the 1100s when the battles of Bergen and the Norwegian Civil War raged between would-be kings economic importance in the 1750s when fish merchants needed more storage, built warehouses at Laksevåg integrated with Bergen in the early 1900s with ferry traffic and then a bridge connection and developing as suburbia LAKSEVÅG - AREA 1,7 - DENSITY 5000 ppl/

  9. 9. – we understand that it does not After getting to know Laksevåg co-exist with the natural environment. People living here are part of a culture and mindset that is developing in
  10. 10. Laksevåg needs to be developed into a more dense situation. In our work, we propose a quadroupling of the existing number of people living here. We propose 25000. Together with a green approach to design, this would foster a new attitude and behaviour – that means that kids growing up here can understand what a stream of water is and collect butterflies. But we also want to introduce a new vertical zoning, with commercial features on the ground levels and to a larger extent thinking about mixed use when new nurseries, school or libraries are placed.
  11. 11. When making architecture, climate is important. In my project - I focus on microclimates.

  14. 14. VOLUMES In the masterplan phase, we developed a diversified strategy on where we put the largest buildings. The existing transport features and site need to serve the purpose of putting a new, more intense use of the streets.
