MAPPING HERITAGE - A workshop expanding narratives on the built environment

Building Narratives

SEP 2020

The workshop Mapping Heritage will present a research methodology used in the feasibility study of a new project on Tomteboda the old post terminal in Stockholm. Produced in parallel with architectural feasibility study this work unraveled historical, political, and ownership background of Tomteboda building and led to unexpected results. It has brought a different narrative to the building and showed the hidden connections and story that interfered with the way we perceive space. The same investigative methodology will be applied to expand the narratives around the Palace of Sports and Concerts in Vilnius. During the workshop participants will try to discover what new narratives can Palace of Sports and Concerts reveal – a building with a complicated history and constantly surrounded by heated debates.
