Marienlyst can become an area that unites urban qualities with access to green and blue qualities, internationally leading knowledge clusters, and proximity to central infrastructure hubs. Marienlyst can become an area where living, learning, working, and recreation come together in new and innovative ways. Our plan seeks to strengthen the quality of the area and establish a clear connection between the city, the center, and the Blindern campus. In this connection, the “Learning City,” a hybrid between city and campus, is created, where Krinkastingshuset is given a new and central role.

Transborder Studio was commissioned by NRK to investigate the possibilities for the development of its property at Marienlyst with a view to a future sale that can finance a new building for the media institution elsewhere in Oslo. Special historical values are attached to the property and its location indicates that the area should play a strategic role in urban development.
The center edge that the property is located in, Majorstua close by and Blindern is changing and it will be important for the development that you find a grip that preserves the qualities that lie in the area while unleashing the great potential that lies in the meeting between city, nature, knowledge and learning.
We believe it is crucial for the further process that a new narrative is created about Marienlyst that goes beyond pure real estate speculation. A new district here on the edge of the city center and on the edge of a knowledge-based power field will be created. Therein lies a great potential for something really remarkable for the city of Oslo.
