09/2018 UNBUILT House:  Exhibition OPening

Welcome you to the opening of the UNBUILT HOUSE Exhibition! Come along and and meet the wildcard offices exhibiting their unbuilt work.
About the Exhibition: Holt O’Brien AS & Svingen Arkitektkontor AS have organised and designed an exhibition called the UNBUILT HOUSE as part of Oslo Open House this year. The exhibition will show the work of young architecture offices. It consists of a collection of models of projects that because of some external factors will never be built. The exhibition aims to show all the buildings that will never be a part of Open House but are still vitally important as part of the development of architectural practise.
