A Collective center is -
in emergency contexts - a pre-existing building used for temporary
accommodation, provision of assistance, and protection of displaced persons –
often located in buildings unsuitable for habitation, sometimes placed in
so-called leftover spaces. Purpose-built collective centers are rare.
With new types of threats, with climate change, migration, and
displacement being a constant phenomenon, what does the 2020 version of the
Collective Center look like? Where are they placed? How can these centers be
turned into positive places for a neighborhood? The studio has proposed
eight projects in five different sites in Oslo, as examples of outputs of
contingency planning for emergencies.
