ARCHITECTURE SPEAKS: REIULF RAMSTAD – ZOOM LECTURE
WED 13.1. 13.15–15.15 (UTC+2)
Reiulf Ramstad received Dottore in Architettura from Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia, Venice, Italy. He established Reiulf Ramstad Architects (RRA) in 1995 in order to create an architectural practice that would turn conceptual research and practical knowledge into driving forces of sustainable design. RRA has earned a reputation for innovative architecture, displaying deep understanding of the uniqueness of every site and program and rejecting standardized solutions. Reiulf has worked with various types of project as both design architect as well as project leader.
Apart from professional work as an architect, Reiulf is also involved in academic activities. He has earned professorship from Arkitekthøgskolen in Oslo and was a regular thesis advisor and juror in the Faculty of Architecture. Reiulf was acclaimed professionally as a board member of NAL, the National Association of Norwegian Architects, in the period between 1997 and 2000, where he became vice president between 2000–2002. In 2016, he was elevated to Honorary Fellow of The College of Fellows, by The American Institute of Architects. He has served as a jury member for many architectural competitions both domestically and internationally. In recent years, following numerous awards and publicity of RRA’s projects, he has been invited to give lectures at various institutions around the world.
“Reiulf Ramstad’s architecture shows a strong bond to the place and landscape. He talks about the need for concentration and presence in architecture”, says Jenni Reuter, curator of the lecture series.
