NINA BERRE, Curator of the exhibition
A tradition in Norwegian architecture emphasizes tactile and spatial experiences and reflects the relationship between buildings and landscape. Sensitivity to place, experimental tectonics and profound attention to detail characterize the tradition. Norwegian architecture is challenged by new dense urban development in major cities. Contemporary projects situated in different geographical parts of Norway comprise the exhibition, ranging from small infrastructure projects to a hydro power station in the mountains, individual buildings in rural and urban landscapes, and works by old masters. The selection of works has been based on the asBUILT book series. An exhibition by Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) in cooperation with Guest of Honour Frankfurt Bookfair 2019 Norway, Norwegian Literature Abroad (NORLA), The Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO), Pax Forlag, and Buchmesse Frankfurt.
The curator is Nina Berre, B+E Curating Architecture and Urbanism.
