WALL DEMOLISHER

The former State hospital in the centre of Oslo moved some years ago and the site got transformed into housing. The hospital had a “disease wall” to prohibit infection to pass out from the hospital and into the city. This task discuss the meaning of the wall, and the role it plays after its function cease to exist.
Investigations through texts, drawings and models ended up with a construction witch over time expand and slowly prays on the wall until it is gone. This will give the interaction between the two territory on both side of the wall a new meaning.
