New OCCAS Anthology
Vor Tids Fordringer. Norske arkitekturdebatter 1818–1919 [The Demands of our Time. Norwegian debates on architecture 1818–1919] published on Pax Forlag is a collection of 75 texts on architecture, gathered from a range of different sources. The editors Mari Lending and Mari Hvattum have scoured newspapers, parliament proceedings, poems, dissertations, diaries, and guidebooks to uncover the forgotten debates on architecture in nineteenth century Norway. The collection demonstrates the period’s strong public engagement with the built environment and reveals aptly the modernity and cosmopolitanism of nineteenth century architectural thinking. The book pertains to the OCCAS research project “19 Century Architectural Imaginations”, led by professors Hvattum and Lending.
