Ruter Gange

In collaboration with Ruter (done at Oslo School of Architecture and Design)

Ruter Gange

Population growth in Oslo and Akershus is putting increased demand on the transport infrastructure. Ruter Gange looks to solve this challenge by expanding the definition of what public transport means in the urban environment, offering a more holistic approach to moving citizens around the city

Onboarding screen

It does this by integrating walking as a supported and equally valid mode of transport in Ruter's systems.

User testing on the bus

Such an approach will contribute to an active walking culture that helps relieve public transport in the most pressing areas and contribute to a better environment and more active city life.

In addition to the enormous benefits in the field of environment, health and economics, such an approach will contribute to an active walking culture that helps relieve public transport in the most pressing areas and contribute to a better and more active city life

Urbane Grendehus

Project for DOGA (Design and Architecture Norway), with support from Termowood, Vestre, MAD Architects and Superwood

Fix your bike, make some waffles or eat dinner with your neighbours

Urbane Grendehus (urban community houses) is a digital service that offers non-commercial, shared meeting places in cities

The service has two parts: Part 1. Small, modular community houses are built in former parking lots and other temporarily unused spaces in the city. These can accommodate a range of different uses (kitchen, work-places, workshop, greenhouses etc.)

Prototype at Nordic Edge Expo 2017

Part 2. Citizens, organisations and neighbourhoods get access to use and share these community houses through a digital service that matches users with available houses that fits their needs

Booking via the app lets you which houses are available in your neighbourhood

As a digital urban service ‘Urbane Grendehus’ will be a scalable, flexible and democratic way to share urban resources

Prototype at Nordic Edge Expo 2017

Transforming parking-lots to community-houses can be used in urban strategies for sustainable transformation and for engaging neighbourhoods and citizens

Personalized News

In collaboration with VG (Done at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design)

The home screen using modular blocks to show customised content

As digital services are getting increasingly personalized, the way we see the world around us is changing. This project looks at different aspects of news personalisation and how it might affect readers, journalists and editors in the future

The two sections: For you and for everyone

The project explores a personalized news service that clearly distinguishes between news of general interest and news of personal interest

The modular block system 

This will provide increased insight into the parameters that shape the news flow to create transparency in an often obscure digital world

Users are can shape their feed through two options: ‘challenge me’ or  ‘more of the same’ 

The result also emphasizes dialogue between the news provider and the user in order to deliver news on the users' premises

Norway 2040: Future Laboratory

In collaboration with Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation & DOGA (Done at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design)

The exhibiton was held at DOGA and opnened by minister Monica Mæland

What is the future for the Nordic model? Will Norway still be a country where we trust each other and share resources, or will there be increased differences, frustration and uncertainty? The aim of this collaboration was to explore the future of the nordic model and show what is at stake for citizens of Norway

One of the four scenarios. A data centre in Hamar, Norway

The project is based on KMD’s report on strategic foresight. Strategic foresight is a tool that is used to explore trends and drivers in our current society to create future scenarios 

Scenario from a child birth clinic in 2040 where all consultations are done digitally

In the end of October 2019, citizens, politicians, policy-makers, designers and bureaucrats were invited to experience scenarios for Norway 2040 through an exhibition and a series of events

Scenario from a café in 2040, where international actors have become increasingly present in the daily life of citizens

It is hard to imagine the future through abstract concepts like trust and change, but by prototyping different future scenarios we can experience what it feels like to be a citizen in Norway in 2040
