Lørenskog, Oslo’s neighboring town in the east, is growing rapidly. The project illustrates what Lørenskog could look like with twice the population; 65.000 inhabitants and how this number could be achieved without removing the cites main industry.

A 10 floor 110m by 110m block with 1000 inhabitants is developed and used as a housing typology. This is in turn used in a master plan to illustrate the size of the future city. Lørenskog will be transformed from a car based sleeping town to a lively mixed used city.
