In 2011 the National Association of Norwegian (NAL) architects fills 100 years. For the occasion NAL invites you to a nation-wide project called the Year of Architecture. The Year of Architecture will be Norway’s biggest architectural arrangement ever. During 2011 over a hundred small and big events will take place over the whole country to challenge, expand and enrich people’s relationship with architecture. With TV programmes, exhibitions, debates, publications, conferences and building projects, the Year of Architecture is a many-facetted opportunity to experience and learn more about architecture.
Room for Change
The principal theme of the Year of Architecture, Room for Change, focuses on changes in society and how these alter the role of architecture. Climate and demographic change linked with growing urbanisation alter the conditions for the shaping of our physical environment, both in Norway and in the world. The Year of Architecture will put the spotlight on why now more than ever we need to understand how architecture can respond to changes in society.
The Year of Architecture is organised by the National Association of Norwegian Architects. Contributors include the association’s professional communities, its member associations, architect firms, public and cultural institutions and business.
Project managers are the art and architecture gallery 0047’s Espen Røyseland and Øystein Rø.
