Marine Research Cluster in Bergen
MetadataShow full item record
The theme of my diploma is a development of The Marine Research Cluster in Nordnes, on the waterfront in Bergen. The existing cluster consist of several smaller buildings, most of which are closed to the public. The two additions are an educational center with conference hall, and a new laboratory building. The proposed site is a parking lot, and creates a gap in the urban facade, especially towards the main approach to the city from the sea. The fleet of ships employed by IMR frequently docks in Bergen for change of staff and delivery of samples collected on their expeditions. The project offers a situation where architecture meets the waterfront and connects itself to the maritime operations.
