Modern Norwegian ArchitectureNorberg-Schulz, Christian: Modern Norwegian Architecture
Modern Norwegian Architecture seems to be non-existent if one turns to current history books, e.g. those of Joedicke, Benevole, Tafuro, or Frampton. Even in the 4-volume MacMillan Encyclopaedia of Architects, not a single Norwegian name is included. Admittedly, Norway has not had any personality of primary importance among its architects, such as Aalto in Finland, Asplund in Sweden, and Jacobsen in Denmark. Yet, Norwegian architecture has much to offer. In this book, which is the first true account of its subject in English, Professor Norberg-Schulz, after a relatively short historical introduction, takes as his starting point the first decade of the 20th century, following the development through National Romanticism, Neoclassicism, Functionalism, and the post-war years, up to the Postmodernism of the 1980s.
