New Architects: Norway

Tues 12 Jan 2010 6.30pm

To launch an international exchange programme for emerging architects in Norway and the UK, The Architecture Foundation is hosting a talk by three new Norwegian practices. AtelierOslo, Haugen/Zohar and PUSHAK will present their work together in the UK for the first time.

AtelierOslo consists of architects Jonas Norsted, Marius Mowe, Nils Ole Brandtzæg and Thomas Liu. They recently won the first prize in the competition to design the new Deichmann Library in Oslo which will sit next to the award-winning opera house by Snøhetta.

PUSHAK Architects is a young female architects' office consisting of Sissil Morseth Gromholt, Camilla Langeland, Marthe Melbye and Gyda Drage Kleiva. "Our approach is based on an open and inclusive vision of what architecture is about," they say. "By asking basic questions about each individual construction task early in the planning, we want to pull in the parameters as local climate, energy and knowledge of local materials and resources."

Haugen/Zohar Arkitekter is an Oslo based practice established in 2005, by architect and artist Marit Justine Haugen and architect Dan Zohar. "For us, architecture is by its nature, earthbound - drawn by and for people," they say. "In our work we aim to question relationships between architecture, function, and art, by integrating the disciplines of landscape - architecture and sculpture."
