jagnefalt milton: a rolling master plan

swedish architecture firm jagnefalt milton has been awarded third prize for ‘a rolling master plan’, their proposed development for the idea competition of andalsnes in norway. 

the design utilizing new and existing train tracks to create a diverse system where buildings roll through the city on rails, providing an opportunity to reorganize programmatic requirements in relation to the urban space. the mobile flexibility allows the city to adjust for uses such as concerts, festivals, markets, and seasonal changes.

the integration of mobile structures – including a rolling hotel, public bath and concert hall – has the potential to transform the city into a dense, integrated and continually changing scenography.  the temporary, small-scale structures sets the ‘city in motion’, providing an important connection between the land and the sea.

  • It is a project which is very easy to like because of its cuteness and human scale. However, I do not think the typological diversity represented in the program plan-diagram is visible in the proposed design, which has a rather homogenous and reductive expression. A truly nomadic development would lead to a more differentiated and individual character of the elements.

  • Thank you for sharing this. It’s so odd, but I had a dream about this a few months back. In it trains were modified into mobile, modular units. The train then travel the countryside by night, so that it’s inhabitants, who were primarily migrant farmers, could follow the harvest and seasonal work.
    Beautifully done.
