6 Modern Homes in Norway
- As Jarmund/Vigsnæs’s growing crop of small, smart houses have garnered increasing attention, their equally prolific civic works have them poised to be Norway’s next big export.
- The northeastern United States is experiencing the first winter storm of the year. On this snow day, take inspiration from Scandinavia, with minimal yet cozy cabins and interiors.
Lost in Nature features a collection of work by the Oslo-based architectural firm Jarmund/Vigsnæs. Through photographs and models, the exhibition highlights architectural projects that focus on close relationships with Norwegian nature.
Jarmund/Vigsnæs Architects was established in 1995 by Einar Jarmund and Håkon Vigsnæs. In 2004 the partnership acquired a third partner, Alessandra Kosberg. With projects ranging from summer cabins and private homes to schools, office buildings, and research centers, the work of JVA has been published and exhibited extensively in Europe, South America, and Asia.
Lost in Nature is the firm’s first United States exhibition and is supported in part by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
A preview reception will be held on Thursday, September 16, 6 to 8 p.m.
