The gates at quay 23 in Tananger opened slowly and I walked in to the restricted area at the port with butterflies in my stomach. I was going out with a supply vessel to the North Sea for the first time. The reason why I was going out with Bourbon Topaz this morning in July was to learn about the bridge environment and its users. I work as a designer and researcher at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in a project called the Ulstein Bridge Concept project. In this project, carried out in collaboration with Ulstein, Kwant Controls and Aalesund University College, we look at what the future bridge may look like. To be able to say anything about that, we need to talk to the users and learn about what they do on the bridge.
