The exhibition Architecture of Transition presents Nordic architects and projects that, in various ways, represent a shift in contemporary architecture. What does society’s increasing demands for climate action mean for architecture, and what are the practical and aesthetically impacts arising from these demands? How can architecture contribute to a society in transition to a new ecological paradigm?

Architecture of Transition showcases architectural answers to the challenges of the current environmental emergency, featuring innovative solutions, new materials and alternative ways of conceiving architecture and urban space. Through photography, film and large-scale installations, the exhibition presents ongoing, realized and utopian building projects that underline potential pathways towards decarbonization and eco-friendly construction methods. In conjunction with the exhibition, Bildmuseet will arrange talks, workshops and physical interventions in the public room.

Participating are 3XN (Denmark), Anders Berensson Architects (Sweden), Belatchew Arkitekter (Sweden), CITA (Denmark), Framlab (Norway), Happy Space (Sweden), Lunden Architects (Finland), and Norell/Rodhe (Sweden).

Architecture of Transition was initiated and produced by Bildmuseet. As curator of the exhibition, Bildmuseet has invited curator, architect and writer Pedro Gadanho, Loeb fellow at Harvard University and former director of MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, Lisbon, and former curator for contemporary architecture at MoMA, New York.

Assistant curator: Anders Jansson
