Air Conditions, Restoring the Public

Part 2 Project 2017

After the relocation of the Munch Museum in Oslo, the existing building's infrastructure is adapted to a new public function. Maintaining an artificial environment was previously imperative to preserving the museum's collection. The vacated building is transformed by repurposing its maintenance systems to elicit the embodied programmatic elements of the bathhouse and the botanical garden. The building's publicness is restored as it becomes an active ecosystem.
