“Contemporary Norwegian Architecture # 7” is the latest in a succession of reviews of contemporary Norwegian architecture. These exhibitions – produced by the Norwegian National museum of Art, Architecture and Design – aim to present a selection of the best work of Norwegian architects in recent years, documenting, summarizing and if possible identifying tendencies and distinguishing a Norwegian characteristic.
The intention with “Contemporary Norwegian Architecture # 7” is to present the qualities of individual works and highlight socially significant aspects of the Norwegian architectural scene.
The exhibition also serves a vital function in the process of choosing works for the National Museum’s collection. The selected projects range from small roadside lay-byes and private homes to complex construction assignments. In an array of approaches – photos, films, drawings, sketches and models in various scales and renditions – the exhibition provides a composite window on Norwegian architecture, completed in the past five years in Norway and abroad.
The exhibition closed on May 13 after three successful weeks.
