Re:Source Pavilion (Timber Studio fall 2022) focused on “disregarded” wooden materials – waste wood from demolitions, cut-offs from construction sites, cut-outs from CLT production, wood that had served as concrete formwork, worn out pallets, and materials from obsolete barns. The environmental potential of wooden materials is maximized with their prolonged life span. 21 students have explored the materials’ poetic and conceptual potential, their constructive capacity, and the role of various joining options.
Oslo Løa (Climate Form Studio spring 2023), a temporary floating pavilion, was designed and built by AHO students across institutes in collaboration with Nordic Ocean Watch and industrial partners. The project goal is to raise awareness about marine pollution and urgent environmental issues. The pavilion hosts activities and engages Oslo’s citizens in waste sorting and recycling
The students’ creative and professional approach led to a playful yet rational structure, connecting people with nature while providing effective shelter. The outcome demonstrates the application of circular construction principles leading to innovative architectural solutions, product prototypes, and efficient utilization of short length timber. With a manual for assembly/disassembly, the structure can be demounted and relocated, ensuring a prolonged lifespan. Oslo Løa is currently installed in front of the Oslo Opera House.
