FUTURE PEOPLE’S PALACES

 

The mass housing produced during the Swedish welfare state’s “Million Programme” (1965-1974) has been heavily debated since the Swedish society’s abrupt shift during the oil crises of the 1970s. Future People’s Palaces provides an overview of this history and presents architectural projects that take on the complexities of renovating those buildings now. In part the challenges are technical, in part they are social and in large part they concern how these projects live in the collective consciousness through their mediation.

KRISTIN JARMUND

 

Characterised by her aesthetic understanding and admirable detailing, workmanship and expressiveness, the works of Kristin Jarmund Architects relate to functionalism but with a reinterpretation and refinement of this idiom. Founded by Jarmund in 1985, this leading Norwegian architectural firm strives for solutions with simplicity in form and function with an emphasis on the human dimension. This monograph explores the rich history of one of Norway’s finest firms, tracing back to Fyrstikkterrassen, a multipurpose commercial building in Oslo, which put Jarmund on the map as a rising star in Norwegian architecture. Since then, Kristin Jarmund Architects have designed a plethora of important and iconic buildings of varying sizes and purposes, including Nydalen Metro Station, award-winning Gulskogen School and the Norwegian Embassy in Kathmandu. In 2010, Jarmund was awarded the prestigious Honorary Fellowship of the American Institute of Architects’ Award for her outstanding work in architecture and society.
