Join COD in Norway for the Spring Conference
Locally Grown | Norway – June 21-30, 2015
Registration closes on June 1, 2015. For discounted rates, register before April 15, 2015.
We will visit three cities - Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger - as well as rural places and projects in between. We will get an historical prospective by visiting a few key structures - a traditional wood farm village, a Stave Church as well as some 19th and 20th century projects. We will then visit new projects, with their architects, to learn how the evolving culture is influencing today's architecture and design.
These firms represent a wide variety of ages, nationalities, sizes of practices, and types of work. Some projects are bigger, some very small. In all cases the projects are rooted in Norwegian traditions while being innovative in their form and craft.
