A sense of place: Local and global architecture (Lectures)

The architect from Norway will explain how to create a space from the very beginning 









One of the architect's tasks is to create an environment, in which a man will feel comfortable. Thus it is important to consider not only the layout and image of a building, but also the feelings which the environment creates. At the lecture architect Reiulf Ramstad will explain how architecture forms the perception of a place.

An architect have to find new solutions and at the same time follow the traditions; inhabitants of a small town want to save their connection with nature but they also want to be like the citizens. The symbiosis of past and future and the connection of local and global challenge the architect who has to find the right decision responding to public needs.

Reiulf Ramstad is an architect and the head of the Norwegian bureau Reiulf Ramstad Arkiteker. For more than 20 years bureau team solves different problems: advocates ecological constructing and rational use of natural resources, tries to rethink the Scandinavian landscape and holds many science studies. The bureau’s project for the Museum of Local History in Romsdal got into the short list of the annual World Architecture Festival 2016, and the tourist center in Trollstigen became the best building of 2009 according to ArchDaily.

The lecture will be held in English and interpreted into Russian with the support of the Embassy of Norway in Moscow.
