Bankplassen 4, Oslo (tidl. Museet for samtidskunst)

Organiser: Oslo School of Architecture and Design

Dwi Website Assembly 1

Design: João Doria

Dealing with it is an invitation only student workshop, but the program will be open to the general public during three assemblies intended to open the forum to a wider audience, encouraging an exchange of ideas and a collective moment of reflection.

During the assemblies, invited speakers and workshop participants will share expert knowledge and insight, inviting conversations between students, academics, fellow architects, designers, artists, engineers, construction professionals, politicians and the general public.

Dealing with it / Assembly 1: survey, assessment and recovery
The first assembly will articulate different methods for the quantifiable assessment of existing sites, such as surveying, inventorying, tactics for the recovery of building elements and physical material testing. How do we measure and assess a building that has been deemed no longer fit for purpose? What is the current condition of the building? Is it structurally stable? How does it perform environmentally? Can it be reused? What materials is it made from? What is the value of that material? How do we decide what is salvageable?

Speakers include: Tristan Boniver (Rotor / RotorDC), Lasse Kilvær (Resirqel), Einar Rodhe (Norell Rodhe), Jacob Schroll (Gamle3Hus)

Assemblies are free and open to the public. For further details, regular program updates, a full list of participants and final locations check here.
