Editors in-charge of the magazine issue on the Norwegian architecture.

Two texts and an interview exploring the notion of Norwegian architecture tradition:

Custom Made: Naturalizing Tradition - essay

Custom Made: The Architecture of Three Ecologies - essay

Jensen & Skodvin Arkitekter: Tailorists of Norwegian Architecture - interview

"Custom Made aims not towards postulating a new canon of Norwegian architecture, nor does it aspire to identify a definite "Norwegian architecture" as such. Rather, it explores the dialectic between architectural practice forms and architectural discourse in modern Norwegian architecture culture. This dichotomy can be defined as respectively "the tradition of production", meaning architectural practice, and "the production of tradition", referring to architectural debates and discourses."
