Uncharted Constructs

– Exploring new ways of working with transformation and inclusive design.
My project brings together three topics that are investigated together: A workplace run for and with people with intellectual disability, transformation of a centrally located industrial building in Bergen, and AI as a dialogical critical tool to question how architectural processes can be developed.
The project is developed through workshops with the user group and their surrounding network, as well as investigations into the existing situation by reading the building’s tectonics, history, placement and inherent qualities and integrating these into the final proposal. AI is used to challenge my thinking by making it work within given parameters and exploiting its combinatory capabilities, and as an experimental tool for engaging in workshops with the user group.
