Elizabeth Diller in Oslo
Lecture in Oslo and Munch + Stenersen site visit
Various Architects is collaborating with Diller Scofidio + Renfro on the competition for the new Munch + Stenersen museum in Oslo. Elizabeth Diller of DS+R visited Oslo briefly on tuesday to give a lecture sponsored by Projekt 0047 and Kinnarps. Diller also visited the site of the Munch + Stenersen competition in Bjørvika. Jim, Ibrahim, and our new student intern Jonathan Evensen showed Liz around the site together with landscape architect Magnus Greni from Grindaker AS. Ibrahim also gave a tour of some of his favorite Oslo Opera details. Liz’ lecture in Sandvika was a big success and the conference room at the Hotel Oslofjord was packed with architects and designers.
