A think tank and workshop around the tank facility at Stornes in Rypefjord.

What might the area be today?

What might it be in the future?

The project is divided into three phases. In the first phase the tanks are used as a canvas for visualising various scenarios for the utilisation of the area.  The scenarios shall demonstrate both realistic and utopian visions to stimulate the viewers’ ideas. In this way we hope to start a discussion around question 2: what the place might be in the future?

The second phase will be a workshop to which we invite various actors interested in developing the area to take part in a creative and constructive process about the place’s potential. The third phase will be a summary of ideas around the area in the form of an exhibition. 

The first phase takes place from 21 to 27 February.

About the Year of Architecture

In 2011 the National Association of Norwegian (NAL) architects fills 100 years.  For the occasion NAL invites you to a nation-wide project called the Year of Architecture.  The Year of Architecture will be Norway’s biggest architectural arrangement ever. During 2011 over a hundred small and big events will take place over the whole country to challenge, expand and enrich people’s relationship with architecture. With TV programmes, exhibitions, debates, publications, conferences and building projects, the Year of Architecture is a many-facetted opportunity to experience and learn more about architecture.

Room for Change
The principal theme of the Year of Architecture, Room for Change, focuses on changes in society and how these alter the role of architecture. Climate and demographic change linked with growing urbanisation alter the conditions for the shaping of our physical environment, both in Norway and in the world.  The Year of Architecture will put the spotlight on why now more than ever we need to understand how architecture can respond to changes in society.

The Year of Architecture is organised by the National Association of Norwegian Architects.  Contributors include the association’s professional communities, its member associations, architect firms, public and cultural institutions and business.


Project managers are the art and architecture gallery 0047’s Espen Røyseland and  Øystein Rø.
