Investigating place-specific urbanism for sustainable communities in the Arctic.
The dissertation project is a regional study of the Hexi Corridor in China’s northwestern Gansu province—a culturally and geopolitically significant zone known as the ‘golden sector’ of the Historic Silk Road. The multi-scalar research includes cartographic mapping, fieldwork, and the visual documentation of individual sites and projects.
Bymiljøarkivet på AHO dokumenterer en serie utviklingsprogrammer drevet fram av Planavdelingen i Miljøverndepartementet fra 1980-tallet og framover.
The project focuses on how digital technologies and media enable new ways of designing urban services and positively affect issues of urban liveability, sustainability, design and governance of cities and urban space.
This research investigates how forcibly displaced people become part of cities, in ways that sustainably contribute to economic development, cultural advancement and wellbeing.
The project maps and investigates existing and potential vitality of remote Arctic communities, with fieldwork to be completed in the Barents region, and in particular in the Varangerfjord Region (Vardø, Kirkenes) of the Kingdom of Norway, and in the Murmansk Oblast of the Russian Federation (Murmansk, Nikel).
This project will investigate evaluation of architectural aesthetics in building permit applications.
The project seeks to extend knowledge of High Arctic coastlines with a specific focus on the spatial, temporal and material engagement and experience of its inhabitants.
At present the Circumpolar North provides a unique laboratory for studying future landscapes of production, infrastructure, excavation, and environmental change.
En analyse av metoder og verktøy for sivilsamfunnsmobilisering, innbyggerinvolvering og medvirkning i kommunale planprosesser, by- og stedsutviklingsprosjekt
This research project explores the potential of a more active role for the architect as a mediator and a key agent in shaping the future, and study innovations in urban practice. How may urbanists and architects contribute to a sustainable future for our cities by operating intelligently in the space between grassroots initiatives and top-down approaches?
A survey and network of contemporary landscape practices in Latin America.
Learning Flexibility: Complexity, Innovation & Inter-Urban Knowledge Transfer
This project studies how the location of dwellings differs in order to look for patterns in the relationships between the attributes of location and housing prices.
Exploring the relevance of urban morphology and cultural heritage in strategic urban planning.
The project focuses on landscape in relation to the project of the metropolis – the possibility of imagining and realizing a coherent form and image of the space of inhabitation. The project proposes the image of Oslo Water Metropolis , as a tool for elaborate descriptions and projections that are able to inspire visions, projects and policies. The aim is to stimulate a dialogue in the Oslo region, to transfer knowledge from relevant experiences and models, and to invite experts and regional actors to engage in a research-by-design.
Water as restructuring element in peri-urban areas of the Oslo Region.
Augmented Urbanism: Prototyping the digitization of city planning through the use of augmented reality in user participation
How can larger logics of the territory inform of regional productivity, a process of mitigation the disturbances, and rediscover regional identity?
The project explores the correlation between the layout and architecture of places used for both displaced persons and their hosts, and suggests inclusionary programmatic and spatial solutions in future responses to urban displacement. The research concerns the role and design of public spaces in urban life. It explores the application of urban design and architectural practices in crises contexts and contingency planning and asks what architects and urbanists can learn from studying displacement situations.
The SUV project (Stimulating the Uptake of Autonomous Vehicles by Local Authorities) provides cities and regions with the right tools and practices to prepare their urban developments for the introduction of autonomous vehicles. It aims to connect and enhance sustainable mobility and city/regional planning to understand the actions needed to maximise the benefits autonomous vehicles can offer society.
Experimenting with systemic and participatory design tools, the research explores the role of landscape architecture in landscape-based climate adaptation and mitigation
Through multi-sited analysis of the ecocultural footprint of a copper-mine prospect affecting both coastal and pastoral communities in Finnmark, the thesis addresses the prospects for re-productive landscapes, Sámi reindeer husbandry, coastal fishery, and outfield environments in the context of Scandinavian policies for industrial mining.
This research project is designed to provide a shared space for researching, reflecting and writing up overlapping and complementary interests between urbanism and design.
The project on The Vital City sets out to explore the relevance of vitalist perspectives for understanding cities and urban cultures.
Stadtunterbau/Urban Base – Catalyst of the sustainable, mixed-use or open-use and adaptable city.
The thesis will study how relocations and movement patterns of programs moving from the inner city parts are manifested in a new peri- urban context of the Oslo Region.
