- 4 january 2011
As part of the Norwegian master plan competition for the city of Åndalsnes, Swedish architecture firm Jagnefalt Milton presented a proposal of rolling buildings on rails. Making use of existing rail road network, Jagnefalt Milton suggested developing ‘portable buildings’ such as hotels, concert halls and public bath, that could be rolled from one place to another through the city based on the need or seasons.
The proposal won the third prize in the competition.
