The workshop represents a larger commitment to traditional trades and building preservation, connected to Follo Museum. We would like to use the building for more purposes at different times in order to reduce the area and contribute to increased interaction between the different activities. Flexible solutions for the workshop and teaching areas, which can, in daily operation, be adapted to different needs from different trades. The public areas ought to be flexible according to the size of events/meetings. In addition to designing the new workshop building, the contest participants must propose a design for the outside areas around the building, including a clear entrance to the Follo Museum, where the workshop is, as well as solutions for an outdoor work yard. The relationship between outside and inside is important.

• The workshop will be a regional public destination at Follo Museum, with attractive activities and cultural experiences for ‘day trippers’.

• The workshop will contribute to increased recruitment to the traditional trades and will be a multi-functional, multi-use arena and professional meeting place where tradesmen, pupils, apprentices, knowledge spreaders, and home owners gain competence and a network.

• The building must be cost efficient and sustainable, with an outside work yard.

• The workshop will be a test arena for research projects and a place that inspires and educates about sustainable solutions for the future.
