The high-speed craft terminal is part of an urban renewal of the artifical island Brattøra in Trondheim. The architecture should convey its infrastructural function, while becoming a site-specific attraction within the urban fabric. Inspired by wooden boats, local craft and the fjord landscape, the project merge the rich history and tradition of the port area with the innovation of high-speed craft transportation. The concept is articulated by a robust choice of materials and structure, recognizable geometrical form, and intuitive flow of passengers and traffic.
