â€śLUXURIOUS MODESTYâ€ť – NORWEGIAN ARCHITECTURE
Anders Melsom, editor of Conditions magazine, Norway
Traditional Nordic values of modesty, intimacy and closeness to nature are still strong components of Norwegian architectural identity, but are increasingly in schism with the oil-fuelled rise in prosperity, consumption and luxury. The Discreet Charm of the Petrocracy is challenged and confronted in various ways by the selected small projects of different typologies, adapting contemporary developments in architecture and society to update the Nordic identity.
Projects by SnĂ¸hetta, Jensen&Skodvin, Brendeland & Kristoffersen, Studio Fredrik Lund and TYIN tegnestue architects will be presented.
