Ditt mikroklima er levert av: Is a unique proposal in the competition in the way it portrays FutureBuilts goal and ambition in a tactile manner. The proposal’s concept is both simple and innovative, by focusing on the different pilot projects sustainable physical performance, rather than iconic form and technology. The jury commends the idea of letting the audience feel and experience the effects of different architectural solutions, while subtley and elegantly strengthen the varoius pilot projects identities.
The proposal shows that innovation is not solely about technical innovations, but also an understanding of the connection between materiality and form as effective means to develop climate-neutral buildings and urban areas. On this basis, the jury sees it as a strength that the proposal has cultivated a simple and tactile concept, and not integrated a digital system in the proposal. The project communicatiest he ambitions of FutureBuilt without being preachy or demanding for the audience. This means that the proposal is emerging as an enrichment of the urban environment, rather than a pure information system.
The jury believes that Ditt mikroklima er levert av: has the potential to appeal to both architects, builders and the public in general, as an integrated part of FutureBuilts pilot projects. The concept can easily adapt to different contexts and projects, and the jury sees it as a clear advantage that the proposal does not provide any concrete and formal reply, but a strong concept with a simple and clear strategy that can be developed further.

Portene aswers well to several of the briefs criterias, with its urban and multifunctional concept. The project has a strong local presence, highlighted well in the presentation. Portene serves as a simple and clear staging of the urban space around the pilot projects, and can thus contribute to increased awareness of climate-friendly architecture and urban development in line with the ambitions of FutureBuilt.
The proposal’s strength lies in its ability to integrate multiple features, beyond informing about the pilot projects. Additional features like bicycle parking, greenery, bicycle pumps, a play area and urban furniture gives the proposal extra energy and added value. The functions also contributes to a physical interaction with the audience, which in turn will provide the pilot projects with increased attention in the city. The idea is robust and adaptable to different contexts, while it appears to be site-specific. The proposal’s digital ambition are somewhat limited, but the connection between the pilot projects are handled in an amusing way, with the various installations “pointing” in the direction of the next pilot projects.

Miljøjakten stands out among the submitted proposals with a distinct physical and digital strategy for highlighting FutureBuilts pilot projects. The proposal connects the various pilot projects in a straightforward way, by encouraging the public to “collect” the various projects by geo-tagging them in an application that guides you from project to project.
The jury particularly like the proposed strategy of breaking down the amount of information in three different levels, to easily communicate the pilot projects environmental measures to the public. The proposal does not convey solely information digitally, but also through a simple info pillar, framing the pilot project in line with FutureBuilts goal of being a 1:1 architecture exhibition in the city.
