Historically Ålesund was strongly connected to the water. Fish and shipping shaped the urban developments and the closeness to the sea is the primary quality of the life of the city.
However the large landfills have created distance between the buildup and the sea for the last 50 years.
This project seeks to reestablish and strengthen the connection between the people and the sea by seeking inspiration from European cities that have had to solve infrastructural challenges on the premisses of the water.
