Places like Norway, where it is a huge variation between winter and summer, have a tradition to use many different type of storage room (boder). A house was not just a place to rest and eat in, but a machinery for all the different levels of preparations to manage to survive; how to prepare the food, manage to keep the house warm etc. In my own low-raisedapartment from the 60th, there is still a own place for washing and drying clothes, a room for storage the fuel, a room for storage food, a room for storage clothes and other personal belongings, a bomb room, and a a drying loft.
In TEK17, there is no longer a restriction to have an outdoor room for storage, except a room for bikes and prams. Since the economy today control many of the trends in the building typology, it is maybe a question of what kind of consequence this change in TEK 17 will give us? Have we all as clean as the interior magazine is showing us, where you almost own nothing?
From my childhood, it was in the bod the project started. For me, it is a room where the individual interest and value can be expressed. It is a room that can buffer up for peoples different daily rhythms and needs. A places that creates identities and relations.
In this project I will invest in our relation to boder our relations with things and these spaces.
