Bonus episode: Dream Projects.
Welcome to Season 2 of 'Can Architecture Fix This?'! New season, new focus: Transformation. How can architecture, landscape architecture, and design in general, contribute to positive change? This is of course a base intention with every project we take on, but how we deliver on those ambitions is often a surprising journey. The first episode of season 2 drops next week, but as a teaser and a warm up for this season focusing on transformation, we’re bringing you something a little different. We asked our colleagues in the Oslo studio to share a dream project. What would they create, and how would they work, if the conditions were right and the sky was the limit.
