Abstract [en]

Can you imagine not knowing your native language?

To be withheld from expressing yourself in tune with where you are born and the land to which you belong? Illiteracy that becomes a barrier. A lack of identity that prevents you to take part of your own origin. Within the scope of where the Sami culture is situated today, architecture can and must support a direction forward for these people.

A sphere that is oriented towards nature. Beholding the foundation of our existence and celebrating the magnificence of it. A building that breathes an entity with it’s surrounding. It’s physical interaction with it and the environmental effect of its future, aware of the recourses that it utilizes. An act that brings history to the present and points towards the future. Infiltrated by the Sami culture for it to flourish and mature. A center to gather, educate, equip and establish. A place where a native language is not only spoken, but restored, so that Sami people can speak their own language, on the land to which they belong.
