Together with the Norwegian architects from Transborder Studio we developed a concept for a climate house in Oslo. Our vision was that it was preaching to the choir to make a climate exhibition to convince people that were already in the know. Instead we’ve made a plan that activates visitors that don’t share a sense of urgency yet and that makes them into climate heroes. Their visit starts exploring earth samples, getting in-depth knowledge of our planet. Then they take off in a spaceship – or should we say earthship. They distance themselves from earth until
they undergo the ‘overview effect’: the image of earth astronauts see when they are in space. An overwhelming experience that creates a heartfelt concern for our planet. Now it’s time to act. Visitors face a number of climate challenges to find out which type of climate hero they are. After this the earthship returns to a pristine blue planet, a poetic end to an exciting adventure that has raised awareness and has opened the eyes of its visitors, climate heroes by now. We have made this concept in the context of an international design competition. Our proposal reached the final.
