National Museum, Oslo
Are national histories of architecture any longer relevant, and what is a “Norwegian” history of architecture, anyway? Given the plans to write a new history of Norwegian architecture, these are topical questions.
Invited scholars and PhD students from several universities presented position statements and papers on this one day seminar on the historiography of Norwegian architecture at the Architecture Museum in Oslo. Mari Hvattum participated from OCCAS/AHO, calling for a contextual history writing based on thorough archival research.
