There is a growing interest in Norwegian architecture, which has revolved in response to changing economic conditions and cultural shifts. Furthermore, issues such as durability, community, innovation and tradition, aesthetic and well-being, digital technology, and environmental resources are key concerns in today’s Norwegian architecture which is highly affected by government policy.

In this edition you will find 7 Norwegian offices and 21 individual villa projects, which are statements of an effort and a documentation of a movement of “Norwegian Contemporary Architecture”.

Iconic projects selected in this special issue are both architectural formal expressions, and models of creations that are trying to develop a norwegian architectural dialect, and thereby a Norwegian contemporary manifestation.

The architectural design of these projects are reflecting not only the style of their time, but the environmental debate over the purpose the architectural studios were intended to serve and emphasize the human and ecological needs.
