RI-TORN, a defined, yet open, framework for growth.

We propose Risoy’s revitalization as a model for urban development that merges sensibilities, rights, and interests through an adaptative strategy. The proposal is a time-based system constructed together: celebrating and integrating differences, taking care of the vulnerable, and offering space for the new. The project sketches an interdependency within a territory with two differentiated areas: a charismatic neighborhood and a busy shipyard shifting towards sustainable activities.
Regenerating Risøy’s represents an exceptional opportunity for Haugesund. The settlement of initiatives within the island will be the materialization of civic agreements, ultimately becoming a destination as it consolidates the sense of place-making for its community.
