In an era of global homogenization, meaningful places of exchange that communicate history and daily rituals must be established to maintain the relationship between culture, place, and geography. Wishing to evidence that cultural identity is generated from the physical setting, activities, and meanings that characterize place, this project proposes an interactive historical archive and performance space in the seafront core of Klaksvík, with auxiliary docks for cultural activities along the urban waterfront.
