PÅFYLL: Qualities of the urban fabric in Bodø

Tid: 06.09.23 Kl. 16.00
Sted: NOUA, Bodø

Vebjørn Joakimsen from Norconsult presents his reflections on the qualities of urban fabric, focusing on Bodø.

NODA invites you to professional and social replenishment at NOUA! Join us after work to meet like-minded people. Designers, architects and anyone with similar interests.

The evening's topic is urban fabric:

Bodø is a rebuilt city, neither picturesque and romanticized nor modern and trendy. The new development challenges this even further, with high-rises challenging the existing identity of the city.

The presentation is a methodical examination of how to address a complex design issue, focusing on the case of Bodø through the prism of light and structure. Inspired by the special light during polar nights, the study considers how buildings are affected by its unique qualities and how light becomes a physical thing interacting with our built environment. The city's structure reveals itself through the analysis of photos, drawings, plans, etc., showing how buildings connect and influence how people move.
