Kongsberg knowledge and cultural hub represents a new chapter in Kongsberg's rich history. Ever since silver was discovered in the hills surrounding Kongsberg, the town has been a hub for knowledge, experience, and technology. Often knowledge has come from outside the city. This pool of knowledge and competancy has created a resilient city. Kongsberg has continually been able to alter in keeping with changes in technology and competancy related to the mining industry and the high-tech spectre of the weapons industry. These industries have atttracted a highly skilled, highly competent global work force. 

Kongsberg knowedge and cultural hub aims to retain, strengthen, and continue to develop these skills and competencies to ensure that Kongsberg sdevelops positively as an attractive workplace. 
  
Linked_In is a strategy for relocating major educational institutions from the suburbs and periphery of Kongsberg to the city centre. The assignment had two main goals: 1. To strengthen Kongsberg as an arena for knowledge, culture and commerce - creating a more vibrant city centre 24-7. 2. To take advantage of the potential synergies between related programs, including shared facilities and human resources. The strategy is thus in keeping with the idea of a continuous seamless education system, important to the Local Government's goals. 

The strategy, as proposed by Rodeo, suggests an infrastructural loop in the city centre that physically connects important public spaces, existing cultural, administrative, and knowledge institutions as well as topographical variations between East and West in the city. The loop ensures short walking or biking distances between institutions as well as to public transport nodes - important to creating a dense, sustainable urban fabric.
