Our new book News in Nordic Architecture includes a special essay by architect Kjetil Trædal Thorsen from Snøhetta with his thoughts on what it means to be nordic.
It’s an interesting essay portrayed with beautiful photografies.
“ ‘Nordic’ relates to something or someone having its roots in Scandinavia. The implicit meanings of someone, or something, being Nordic is, however, much wider, especially when paired up with nouns such as ‘society’, ‘values’ and, why not, ‘architecture’. ” (Kjetil Trædal Thorsen)
