This master course has focused on urban situations in Bergen and in Floroe on the west coast of Norway.
The Bergen School of Architecture is a private, academic and pedagogic alternative to the traditional polytechnic educational facilities producing architects.
Students enrolled here are accepted through a personal interview and review of a creative, personal portfolio. The students are highly motivated and travel extensively throughout the 5 years of study. The 2nd day of study starts with 4 weeks on a small island, far out west - where the icecap melted and settlers first came to Scandinavia.
