Elastic Urbanism

Elastic Urbanism

Bodo, Norway

Elastic Urbanism is a synthesizing surface which enhances the civic nodes of Bodo's cultural foundation by developing a single surface incorporating program as the main generator creating a formal urban strategy. A set of axis existing on the macro scale of the site yielded spatial connectivity, and placement of the three cultural institutions, a library, theater, and sloping museum.

The library is the anchor point to the artificial landscape. This surface allows for multiple paths connecting the theater at the opposite end and the Slooping museum at the focal point of the project. The intention is to offer a variety of circulation modes which allow the body to experience the harbor in variety of vantage points. This master plan responds to the development strategy by creating an intensively coherent, heterogeneous single surface produced by the integration of several spatial and programmatic elements.
