Håkon and Haffners Building Bricks


Today the towns that built Norway are often looked on as small, run-down and ugly.  The programme presenters tell us the story of how these strange towns grew up almost from nothing and contributed to make Norway the powerful nation it is today.  The programme presenters are given the task of revitalising Norway’s longest building, the transport band (Vikabandet) that connects the harbour in Mo i Rana with the iron works farther in the town. 

Håkon and Haffner's Building Bricks is a TV series about architecture produced by NRK and Fantastic Norway Architects.

The National Association of Norwegian Architects NAL, has contributed to the production of the series.

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.
