Sólveig María Gunnarsdóttir
Buzzing electric pylons against rippling tides – symbolic for the continuous conflict between nature, history and time in Hvalfjörður. The Whaling station, which once was a military base, now becomes a battleground and a centre for climate action. Buildings that once held destructive forces will be forced to become their inverse. Rising through an outdated foundation, facilities form a platform between activists and climate scientists. The construction of the eco-village is reflected in a new materiality where timber and glass cut through concrete walls. The external shapes the internal and what happens on a large scale affects the small scale. In constant analysis of the cycle of nature, villagers learn to live in harmony with it.
