Activate, Generate, Integrate!
Illuminate the skylights to create a powerful image for the skyline,
Allow the translucency of the vertical extensions to reveal the movement and
Allow the ‘crane’, the big horizontal beam to reflect the warm sunset sun.
In the interior, work with verticality and light. Transform the silo tubes into a magnificent space of light, movement and awareness of others. Create a vertical labyrinth of light and movement that generates strong spatial experiences.
Create a City of Culture with strong urban identity.
Create a generous urban square in front of the Silo and connect it to the quay
Create urban fronts that surround the Cultural Square and the Sjolystveien road.
Break the mass into smaller units and introduce a sloped roof skyline.
Generate a programme of centrality (i.e cultural school, offices and business, hotel, leisure activities, club).
Generate an open-air, elevated green roof / leisure programme on certain parts of the development (i.e. on top the Cultural School, the hotel, the Club): protected roof gardens to take advantage of the view and the sun.
