The winner 2011

The jury unanimously chose the project ‘Why don’t we do it on the stairs’ by architecture students Victor Serrander (Stockholm) and Anders Grivi Norman (Oslo) who started the Berlin-based architecture collective Re-Make/Re-Model in 2010.

With an impressive interest from all over the world the design competition BUILD WHAT HERE asking to design a physical space a landmark for the Roskilde Festival 2011 has found its winner. The competition resulted in 67 very different, creative and inspiring proposals from archi-tects, artists and students from Denmark to Columbia.

The jury unanimously chose the project 'Why don't we do it on the stairs' by architecture students Victor Serrander (Stockholm) and Anders Grivi Norman (Oslo) who started the Berlin-based architecture collective Re-Make/Re-Model in 2010.

"The winning project demonstrates a great understanding of the Roskilde Festival audience and creates a magnificent platform for creativity, interaction, relaxing and enjoying the festival. The structure will cer-tainly be a well-known and iconic meeting point at Roskilde Festival 2011 with its illuminated monumental and dynamic structure" says Esben Danielsen - Head of Development at Roskilde Festival.

A strong focus on flexibility and user-interaction
The winning proposal consists of two large stair-structures facing each other. The stairs offer views over the festival and the Orange Stage and are filled with 'activity boxes' - inviting artists and festival guests to engage in the Culture Zone. The structure is to be built of re-used plywood and scaffolding.

Victor Serrander and Anders Grivi Norman are both experienced when it comes to Roskilde Festival as they have attended the festival several times. And that is why the proposal has a strong focus on flexibil-ity and user-interaction:

"'Why Don't We Do It On The Stairs' aims at being a space that can be whatever people want it to be: a place that can be used for everything from movie screenings and debates to dancing and kissing. We can't wait for the summer!" says Anders Grivi Norman.

The winning project and other highlighted proposals will be presented in an exhibition at the Danish Ar-chitecture Centre from May 7th 2011.
