Tove Söderberg


The architectural design concept for the point is the reverse ruin, an additional conceptual layer to the design for the archive buildings. Both aspects of the concept regard time and change, and the reverse ruin concern the evolution of the buildings into ruins over time. The idea is developed in relation to the cultural heritage remnants found throughout the fire area. From the beginning the design is looking at what the physical traces left behind from the archive may look like and what hierarchy and spatial sequence they communicate.
