From preserving buildings to protecting communities

Our surroundings are constantly being threatened by builders and architects who show little respect for the uniqueness of local communities and our cultural heritage. New buildings materialise like foreign bodies in well-established and harmonious neighbourhoods – with little regard for scale and size, and often with contrasting and extreme design and use of materials

"Allgreen" was the name our old Norse gods used for the planet earth. We have borrowed this name to form a non-political, non-commercial movement. 
Our primary concern is to take care of our cultural heritage and to influence developers to do the same. About some of the Allgreen Projects:

Arendal, the town with the canals.
 
The idea to dig up and revive the South Coast town of Arendal's ancient canals was launched in 1989. "The Canal Association for the enrichment of Arendal's environment" has now more than 2500 members and supporters and is encouraged by the Department of Environment.

Oslo Harbour.
In 1991 we initiated the effords to visualise Oslo Harbour Corporation's dispositions in the capital's seafront and its negative consequences. Our six reports have resulted in an initiative by the Council of Oslo to reconsider the plans for a new harbour development. 
See a photograph of the plans for Oslos seaside that we stopped on this page.


   
The Villages. 

We have realised the demand for a renewed debate about human environment and its influence on the quality of life. Our objective is to establish competence to develop the Village concept in Norway. Format and scale present problems in large developments. We would like to see new developments where the civic qualities of the ancient villages are maintained.

Our helper from ancient
norwegian myths:
The Norse mythology presented us with Skade, daughter of the Jotun. She enjoyed skiing and hunting in the Norwegian mountains. The fairies hailed her as "Ondurdis", the godess of skiing. She keeps an eye with the activities of Allgrønn, her earth. Now she has returned from the mountains to patronize the conditions of life in villages and urban areas. We give Ondurdis to people or organizations that we like.
