The award was announced by the mayor of Oslo, Fabian Stang, at Oslo City Hall and honors outstanding architecture in Oslo.

The jury said:
“In dialogue with conservation authorities, the redevelopment of the former textilefactory from the 1890s has been transformed and given new life with a wide range of cultural activities. The project demonstrates innovation both in conservation as well as architectural and building solutions. In a careful and exemplary way the past and present are linked, for the future.”

Clarion Hotel & Congress Trondheim
Unlike the classical American and Asian hotel atrium where everything is exposed in a centralized and vertical, magnificent but one-dimensional experience under a glass cover – the lobby is here given a 3-dimensional and dynamic spatial experience with a programmed roof, and a sequence of shifts between glimpse and panorama, intimacy and spectacular exposure. The hotel bears references to the local city fabric of Trondheim in the combination between the large structural lines and the small intimate ‘ally’.

Luftfartstilsynet Bodø
Building a new headquarter for Luftfartstilsynet is a challenge in creating a place for an uprooted organization, transplanted from Oslo to Bodø, and in doing so, building a new office culture. The site, a compact waterfront property, is hidden from its street address by the recently completed NAV building.
