The Committee on Design (COD) was founded to promote design excellence among members of the AIA, the broader design community, and the public at large, both nationally and internationally.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the AIA Committee on Design leadership voted to postpone the domestic and international conferences to 2021. The new dates for the conferences are Denver, May 13 to 16, and Singapore, October 9 to 22.
This is a list of prospective projects we will be visiting during the 2015 COD Conference in Oslo, Bergen and Stavanger, Norway taking place June 21-30.
The Norway conference will be arranged so you can attend all three sections, the first two, or the last two. There are international flights to all three cities.
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.
