Lantern: AWP + atelier oslo

French-norwrgian team AWP + atelier oslo have completed ‘lantern’, a design that won them
first place in an international competition held by the city of Sandnes, Norway.
The community, which is the second fastest developing city in norway, lacked a defined identity
and welcoming public domain. In an area affected by a divided urban layout, the proposal aims
to create a space that would engage and integrate civilians into the less welcoming city center.
‘Lantern’, which sits in a narrow, pedestrian only square, was designed to accommodate a range of
potential activities including a market and a concert venue. Imagined as a place that would stimulate
creativity through creativity, the tree-like pavilion becomes a sculptural object and a destination in
the middle of the binary city.
