Design contest – “More room for human values”.
Based on local events during the Second World War, the Awarding Authority works with drawing parallels to today’s social conditions. The objectives are to strengthen the works for fundamental human values, democracy and attitude improvements as well as promoting dialogue and understanding between individuals, groups and nations. The main target group is school children. Every year approx. 10 000 people participate in various activities arranged by the Foundation and the Foundation wishes to get through to even more people. However, the foundation has outgrown the building’s physical frames, and the premises therefore set obvious limitations of activity level. The Awarding Authority has decided to carry out a restricted design contest where the object is to achieve a good and dynamic concept which ensure the ambitions the Awarding Authority has for developing the “Foundation Arkivet” to become a national centre for history dissemination and peace building and it shall simultaneously allow for bonds in relation to the “Foundation Arkivet” as a historical location. The Awarding Authority put particular emphasis on the requirements and functions described in the “Project plan for development of the “Arkivet””. It is assessed that extension of the site is possible, but the final extent must be clarified through a zooning process. It is also assumptions in connection with expansion due to the existing building’s architectural and antiquarian value. The concrete object of the design contest is to find a winner project which displays options for developing the “Arkivet” with focus on the following areas: — arena for dissemination and reflection, — suitable areas for employees, — flexibility (i.a. in connection with use of premises over a period of time, option for hiring out sections of the premises in evenings), — logistics (evident entrance, areas with capacity for larger groups, etc.).
