A new exhibition of selected works by architect Kristin Jarmund starts today at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts on Holmen, and will be opened by Norwegian Ambassador Jørg Willy Bronebakk.

Most of Jarmund’s work has been photographed by Norway’s most famous photographer Per Maning.

Maning has represented Norway at the Venice and Sydney Biennale and appears in a number of collections, amongst others those of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, and Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum.

On display will be a number of school buildings, east Oslo’s Fyrstikkterrassen office building, Nydalen underground station, and several other works. All will be supplemented with their original project plans.

The exhibition has also been shown in various cities, such as Seville, Montreal, Mexico City, Washington DC, and Moscow, and is travelling across the world.

Kristin Jarmund was born in 1945 and is one of Norway’s most renowned architects. She is a graduate of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and London’s Architectural Association School of Architecture, and has won a number of prestigious awards.

The exhibition runs until 22 September. For more details, visit the website.
