KATTISA: Layer on Layer
FOREST FINN MUSEUM, NORWAY
KATTISA is a maze-like traditional fishing construction that lures the fish into a circular wooden fence.
Our proposed design for the Norwegian Forest Finn Museum takes its inspiration from Kattisa's layers upon layers of zoning that allows the visitor to be embedded in the amazing story of the Forest Finns who with their slash-and-burn agriculture migrated all the way from Finland to Eastern Norway during the 17th century.
In the center of the building sits a a circular atrium with a warm "hearth" that produces smoke. This feature is inspired by the traditional smoke cabins, where the smoke from the fire place is simply led directly up to the roof and aired out with a hatch in the roof rather than a chimney.
