House of Architectural Heritage
4:00 - 7:00pm
Students’ projects from the Guest Studio, fall 2020
The Oslo School of Architecture and Design
In their projects, the students of The Oslo School of Architecture were investigating the possible architecture of unplanned and unprogrammed, transient public spaces of baraha, by designing contemporary barasti, based on their research of public life in Muharraq. The new structures were temporary or not, engaging the structural logic, informal life and activities of the city, in-between the monuments of Pearling Path and on the sea-shore.
The aim was to create a series of punctual interventions along the Path, to express their seasonal, transient character, in order to trigger the new understanding of public spaces in the city.
Hours: Saturday-Thursday 9am-1pm and 4-7pm
