Strawberry Field : Production and Activity center in Torshovdalen

Kinga Rusin

Strawberry Fields is an architectural proposal which aims at improving lives of refugee children and teenagers who arrive in Norway. The building is conceived as an open enclosure, closely connected to sloped landscape of the site. Its lower part is elevated above the ground and overlooks the city, while the upper structure is anchored within. It seems as if its architecture raises out of the park. Despite the level variation, the structure generates strong courtyard space.Walls are given new functions - holding the landscape out and creating new spaces ofi nclusion. A long table wraps around the innerwall generating spaces for activities and learning. Sequence of various programs creates a continuous flow without an end - paths of the park enter the space and open view toward the fjords.
