Through my SRDV project I participated in last year, I got much more avare of the context in a project, and the local resources in a society.Blog Image



Transformation

Process Posted on Wed, November 03, 2010 22:30:42

Old industrial buildings were build to last, and I personally see a huge value in giving them a new life, and telling their stories from the past.

It used to be an old abandoned elevated railroad now transformed into a public park. What I like the most about the project is the social aspect of it, giving a public park to the society, not tearing it down and building another private office building. It’s also the only park in NY with a view.



The value of craft

Process Posted on Wed, November 03, 2010 21:41:32

Traditional craft tell stories about culture and history of a place. It focuses local and every item is unique. The social aspect in learning and including the local resources are qualities that are important in our society today. The Spinnery focuses on local involvement and resources.

Transition Network started as a student project in Ireland in 2005, and have now developed in more than 150 societies in Europe, USA and New Zealand.

Låndås in Norway is by now the only Norwegian society who is a part of the network.

With a focus on permaculture, using few resources to cover their needs and strengthen the community.



Massproduction

Process Posted on Fri, October 29, 2010 12:58:35

Massproduced products are in many ways a contrast to handcrafted. They are produced in large numbers, and are cheap to buy. It is easy to throw away when we want something new. The products are often shipped across the globe to reach their consumers.
