Rise of Nature
Stavanger (NO) – Runner-up
Team Representative: Dace Gurecka (LV) – architect
"Maybe the very basic premise of Forus is that it is a truly neoliberal place which has no common project and is fully subjected to contemporary rhetoric of negotiation. The ‘Rise of Nature’ project is a proposition for the territory to find a space within those realms which can today still establish common project for a city – which I would point out as the space of infrastructure and regional level landscape. Therefore ‘Rise of Nature’ is a proposition for the Jæren region and not just a collage; it is a direction."
