In Service of Undiscovered Life – Book launch

Our book launch on the 15th August was a great success with over 150 guests in attendance.

In Service of Undiscovered Life. On sale online through Arvinius + Orfeus Publishing

The book explores the rich history of one of Norway’s finest architecture firms, going back to Fyrstikkterrassen – a multipurpose commercial building in Oslo that put Jarmund on the map as a rising star in Norwegian architecture. Since then, Kristin Jarmund Architects have designed a plethora of important and iconic buildings of varying sizes and purposes – including Nydalen Metro Station, the award-winning Råholt School and the Norwegian Embassy in Kathmandu.

Characterised by her aesthetic understanding and admirable detailing, as well as workmanship and expressiveness, the work of Kristin Jarmund Architects relates to functionalism, but with a reinterpretation and refinement of this idiom. Founded by Jarmund in 1985, this leading Norwegian architecture firm strives for solutions with sublime simplicity in form and function, and an emphasis on the human dimension. With roots in Nordic modernism, the work of the office engages in close dialogue with all who see, experience and use the spaces.

The book is divided into four thematically oriented chapters that cover a broad range of projects by Kristin Jarmund Architects. They are accompanied by thematic introductions by the editor of the book, Tomas Lauri; a foreword by Kjetil Trædal Thorsen; an essay by Aaron Betsky; and an extensive interview with Kristin Jarmund by Tomas Lauri.

Tomas Lauri is an architect and critic. He is co-founder of the architectural office ARKLAB and former editor of Arkitektur: The Swedish Review of Architecture. He has written several books on Nordic architecture.

Kjetil Trædal Thorsen is co-founder and partner of the architectural practice Snøhetta since 1989. He is a lecturer on architecture and was professor of architecture at the Institute of Experimental Architecture at the University of Innsbruck from 2004 to 2008.

Aaron Betsky is a critic, curator, writer and lecturer on architecture and design. He is former director of the Cincinnati Art Museum and currently dean of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. He served as director of the 11th Venice International Architecture Biennale.

Kristin Jarmund Architects, established in 1985, has over the years attained a high profile on the architectural scene in Norway. This is confirmed by a series of awards and 1st prizes received in both private and open competitions. Today the practice works within the disciplines of Architecture, Planning and Interior Design.
The practice’s design philosophy aims at solutions that reduce complex problems to simplicity in form and function, while at the same time allowing for a sensitive awareness to context and the human dimension.
Good results come from a successful process. Making architecture is a team effort. Now more than ever, the result of our work depends on close collaboration with a number of players: the client, public administration, specialized consultants, conservation authorities and, above all, the end users. At Kristin Jarmund Architects we have the skills and experience to guide and nurture the process through every phase of a project, from public planning through schematic design and construction documents – to successful execution on site. We are Eco-lighthouse certified.
