Presentation by Norwegian Architecture firm Code, in New York on April 1st.
Code was established in Oslo in 1997, by partners Bjarne Ringstad, Julian Lynghjem, Gaute Stensrud, and Henning Kaland. Ole Einejord joined the firm as partner in 1999. Henning Kaland will present the firm’s work with a particular emphasis on its commissions for Norway’s National Tourist Route project – a network of scenic byways, viewing platforms, and roadside pull-offs.
The twelve-person firm describes its practice as a “positive, non-judgmental approach to the present. Within our work lies a consciousness about the coexistence of factors such as landscape, texture, culture, politics, sustainability, performance, and economics.” Code has won a number of national and international architecture competitions for projects, including private residences, office buildings, schools, hotels, and urban development projects. Current projects include residential housing in Tromsø, Hokksund, and Oslo, as well as National Tourist Route projects in Senja and Gaularfjell. Code was recently invited as one of ten architects worldwide for the competition on a new Edvard Munch museum in Oslo. When:
