Fantastic Norway as part of the DMY Festival 09

An event created by Fantastic Norway as part of the DMY International Design Festival 09 in Germany / Berlin. In the project members of Fantastic Norway were wearing models of high-rise towers while walking, cycling and dancing around the city. They dressed up as their latest building and went sight seeing around Berlin.

”The walking houses are man-sized models of our latest architectural project: a tourist destination located on the northern west coast of Norway. As our project depend on the idea of travelling, we decided it was only fair that the houses got to do some travelling too!”

The project consists of a group of narrow high-rise modules welcoming the guests of the Norwegian west coast. The systematic and flexible module-system allows the outdoor spaces, the miniature high-rise modules and the interiors to be designed in collaboration with the future inhabitants and selected artists. Interacting with the locals of Berlin, the event emphasizes the project’s social and local ambitions.
