You know the fishing village. That charming place with red huts on stilts under soaring mountains, a harbour filled with wooden fishing boats and swearing, weathered fishermen in knitted sweaters and yellow sou'westers?
That place doesn't exist anymore.
Following the technological advances and political regulations of the past decades, most of the small settlements along the coast are left with still waters and abandoned fisheries. Calling them fishing villages is refering to a reality which ended long ago. But what if we gave them new names? This project is aimed at exploring the role of the architect in the development of the typical Lofoten-fishing village, Ballstad. Can the architect, by using her analytical- and communicational tools in a broad sense, become someone who finds new possibilities, and sets quiet waters into motion?
