Artificial reefs on surfaces for biodiversity in Oslo harbor: How system oriented design and a digital service brings us one step closer
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this project is to find design opportunities and a designed proposal for habitat restoration and more specifically ‘artificial reefs’ on surfaces in Oslo harbor. This is also known as ‘diversification of surfaces’. Through the project, 5 valid intervention points are identified. Key insights from the process are presented, with concepts, and a proposed solution, with a discussion. This is a system oriented design project. The project is informed by literature review, interviews and evaluation sessions with stakeholders. The data has been worked using GIGA-map (Sevaldson, 2011) and analyzed using zip analysis (Sevaldson, ZIP-analysis, 2012). Concepts were tried and tested using evaluation sessions with stakeholders. Many concepts failed. A final prototype was analyzed using context of experience (Gulden & Moestue, 2011), and testing for usefulness principle (Nordbø, 2017) with stakeholder.
