Sammenkoblet (NO)

Ligger det et uforløst postensiale i Trøndelags ressurssystemer? Hvis ja, hvilke konsekvenser kan økt ressursutnyttelse få for rural og urban utvikling i Trøndelag, og hvordan vil det påvirke menneskene som bor der? Kan en endring i ressursutnyttelse også få nasjonale og globale konsekvenser?

NTNU Campus Development: Surplus

The Urban Triggers course of autumn 2018 was stationed in Trondheim, with the ongoing campus development and co-location of Gløshaugen/Dragvoll as a backdrop. The whole studio worked together as a group and took on the task of exploring which possibilities that can be found in Trondheim being a university city. The project ended up as a webpage in the final delivery.

Xi'an: Courtyard Living

The Urban Trigger course of 2015 was held in Xi’an, China. All three groups chose to work with a village in the outskirts of Xi’an called Hou Wei Zhai. The village lies in an area called Xi-Xian, which is a major future development zone. The village is not an urban village, nor is it a rural village; it lies somewhere in between.

This group worked on the courtyard typology, and compared the density of the village to the density of highrise projects.

Xi'an: Jiè

The Urban Trigger course of 2015 was held in Xi’an, China. All three groups chose to work with a village in the outskirts of Xi’an called Hou Wei Zhai. The village lies in an area called Xi-Xian, which is a major future development zone. The village is not an urban village, nor is it a rural village; it lies somewhere in between.

Group 3 worked on a strategy for the transition zone between the village and the surrounding areas, aiming to preserve and distribute the “embedded time” of the village.

Protokoop

Sea level rise is one of the most serious and specific consequences of climate change. At first glance the problem may not seem pressing, as most of the predictions will hit us over the course of many years, and people can move further inland if they need to.

However, the worlds population continues to grow, making the land earth more and more scarce. Cities also expand, seizing valuable arable land. Could building on water relieve some of the pressure man puts on land earth?

123.Z / Nidelva

The river Nidelva runs through the heart of Trondheim. It overlaps local food chains, a wide range of varying interests, and many key resources. How can the river and the interconnected system of which it connects, inform, enrich and define future urban development?

Xi'an: It takes a village

China's rapid urbanization is creating many challenges and problems. In the last decades, many villages that once existed outside the Chinese cities have been swallowed up. Today they are surrounded by high-rises and a hectic modern life. One of the challenges China now face is how to deal with these "urban villages".

Viable solutions require economic profit for every actor, but also a focus on sustainable processes and a prosperous future for the villages and its inhabitants.
