Snøhetta is one of the few Norwegian architects offices that reap international success. The fusion of architecture and landscape forms the central point in their conceptual approach. The best example is their design for the Oslo Opera.
In Oslo we are led by an impressive series of works by Arne Korsmo and Sverre Fehn. In Stockholm we see masterpieces by Asplund, Lewerentz and Celsing, and in Uppsala unexpectedly an Aalto. We also discover recent work of Snohetta, Kristin Jarmund, Jensen & Skodvin, Jarmund & Vigsnaes and Henning Larsen.
There is a rare charm and something indescribable personal from all that is in the hands of Asplund & Lewerents.
‘Lost in Nature’ is the essence of their architectural design methodology. They integrate their architecture into the landscape in a way that the enclosure almost merging with the surroundings.
Christian Norberg-Schulz (Oslo) is a monument in the field of architectural theory and the scientific approach to architecture. The focus on the theoretical development is checked permanently by Norberg-Schulz in the history of architecture.
