Project description

17 architect students have designed and built a stairway and exhibition linking together the upper and lower parts of Kjøpmannsgata. The layered stairway is a symbol of co-operation between Trondheim municipality BLÅ TRÅD, Studio:Beta, Faculty of Architecture and Fine Art and a wave of student engagement. Architecture students have together completed the project in just 13 days, through a combination of 1:1 testing, concept development scale and good discussions. The wave-like design concept has been expressed through the transverse lines of the floorboards creating a continuous form down the slope, forming seating and plateau. The structure also includes a removable display can be used for all the exhibits to energize the street.Bølgen was a contribution to the Holzbau Nordic conference in september 2014.
