GK6 Common Forms #3 - NRK Tøyen



For three consecutive semesters, the foundation course GK6 has focused on the redevelopment and relocation of Norway’s Broadcasting Service’s (NRK) headquarters in Oslo. The overarching theme has been the city’s “common forms”, meaning larger, public/publicly owned structures in the city with the potential to play key roles in the redevelopment of the city. This year, the site was “sirkustomta” på Tøyen, adjacent to the botanical garden and Tøyenparken. As a multipurpose field centrally located within an area experiencing strong gentrification and redevelopment processes, the 45000m2 NRK program became a vessel to address the role, purpose and potential of NRK as form, program and institution within urban development at Tøyen and in Oslo.
