Geir Brendeland, Olav Kristoffersen. Brendeland and Kristoffersen

Brendeland & Kristoffersen. Norwegian architects Geir Brendeland and Olav Kristoffersen have developed a wide-ranging practice over the past fifteen years, designing exquisite buildings, teaching students, and thinking through the implications of building in the 21st century. Known for their ambitious approach to housing, urban development and social provision, they have also worked on temporary, sometimes peripatetic, projects including exhibitions, installations and public interventions. Both Brendeland and Kristoffersen teach in the Faculty of Architecture and Design at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway, which situates their practice within a critical discourse.

Their interest in Råängen stems from a broad commitment to a common good as well as long-term engagement in issues relating to land ownership, communal ways of living, vernacular architecture, craft and local materials. Many of their projects involve communal activities that involve a broad range of people, including teenagers, children and adults. Their public space for Råängen will help set the tone for future development on the Church’s land in Brunnshög and will involve collaboration with Lund Municipality and the University.
