In 2018 a cross-disciplinary group of students worked together on a design challenge at the intersection of the urban and the ”un-urban”. The summer workshop was located in Træna, a small island community at the Arctic Circle in Northern-Norway. The design challenge was to find a new use, layout, design, and concept for old an old community house, ”Grendahuset”.
It was a collaboration between AIR Træna, Grendahusets Venner, School of Visual Arts New York, Umeå School of Architecture, Oslo School of Architecture and Design and DOGA, Norway.
