The twentieth century may be defined by many things, however it is the frenzied rate of exchange that will certainly come to define the twenty-first century. As the movement of large groups of people becomes more fluid due to the rapid development of technology, the weakening of national borders, and the pull of Western capital, more and more people are experiencing states and times that can be characterized as transnational. Interestingly, in the developed West, new flows of transnational labor are drawn into rural and marginal landscapes. In these at-times reactionary places, the global and the local are increasingly compounded. This thesis examines these trends occurring in the marginal areas of Arctic Norway and searches for an architectural language that allows new arrivals to truly dwell in an alien world.
