Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) is centrally located and carries history back to the 1800’s. Historically, from 1936 til 1938, the building was used as an old substation for electricity in Oslo. We let ourselves be inspired by this orgin and started to study the aesthetics of circuit boards. Circuit boards (PCBs) leads electric signals, and we decided to use it as a style statement in our project.
We categorized room types in code colours:
Yellow – Info / Administration
Orange – Active rooms
Blue – Teaching rooms
Black – Passage / Toilet
Industrial electricity and electrical circuit boards.
