Contemporary Norwegian Architecture # 7 (2005-2010)

24/01/2013 - 10/03/2013

This exhibition features the most recent achievements of Norwegian architecture. It strives to convey the qualities of individual projects and to highlight developments of broader social significance.

The exhibition icludes a broad range of works, e.g. a small resting room or private houses, complex construction and infrastructure solutions, as well as urban formations of recent years. Using various forms of presentation and media, the exhibition gives a good idea of Norwegian architecture, realized in Norway and abroad in the years 2005-2010.

The exhibition presents 31 works, and two groups shown together: the “passive house” in Tromsø created by Steinsvik Architects and the exploitation of the National Tourist Routes of Norway.

This exhibition is the latest in a series exploring contemporary Norwegian architecture since 1968. It presents a selection of the best work by Norwegian architects from the years 2005-2010.

Scientific advisor in Greece: Andreas Giakoumakatos

Opening: January 22, 8.00 p.m.

In the framework of the exhibition two lecture will be given by director of Norwegian Museum of Architecture Nina Berre (at the opening of the exhibition, January 22) and by Kristin Jarmund (March, 6)
