Center for Arctic Culture

Our proposal is to use the Artic Cultural Centre to create a new type of public space in Hammerfest using the centre’s programs as a generator. As most of the programmatic components are themselves spaces of a public nature, we propose that they become a part of the cultural centre’s public zone. We wish to create transparency between the programs, allowing for a greater utilization of the building and with the consequence of making it suitable for both large and small events in addition to other special activities.
