Fosnavåg Future Evolution
A future development strategy for Fosnavåg connecting the town development with the harbor and the natural bay with publicly-accessible spaces and new programs around the unique harbor
The coastline around the harbor is roughly 3,500 meters long. Proposed plans for massive fillings in the sea provide an undesirable leveling of the coastline, which provides fewer contact and activity points along the bay-side. The potential of the existing coastline in the harbor should be further cultivated and made longer – not refilled and shortened on. Fosnavåg is missing point of contact with the sea which can be a hybrid between the natural and the purely industrial. The potential will be fulfilled through making good transitions between land and sea where recreation for the people in town are in particular emphasized. In these transitions, the city by the sea can also recover its identity.
