Lecture: Neven Mikac Fuchs - Inverted House 11/4/2017



On Tuesday 11 April 2017 at 7 pm, in Oris House of Architecture and Design, architect Neven Mikac Fuchs will deliver a lecture about the Inverted House, a joint project of Oslo School of Architecture and architectural studio Kengo Kuma & Associates.

In April of 2015, The Oslo School of Architecture and Design was awarded the first prize in an architectural competition hosted by LIXIL JS Foundation, with an atypical theme: House for Enjoying the Harsh Cold. The outcome, a small guest house in the wilderness of Hokkaido, seeks an intrinsic sustainability. By subtly controlling its architectonic environment, it maximizes efficiency and performance of architectural elements.
