event information


Ms Helsing Almaas is a Norwegian architect, critic, writer and former editor-in-chief of Arkitektur N, the Norwegian Review of Architecture. From the vantage point of Northern Europe, she has been an active commentator on the culture of architecture since the early 1990s. Her writings encompass the experience of a wide field of architectural practice: from furniture making and building conservation work to teaching and political engagement. And she has worked in most fields of architecture, too, in one capacity or another.

Since training as an architect in the UK, Helsing Almaas has taught in the Architectural Association diploma school in the late 1990s (working with film and video in an attempt to bridge the gap between architecture and narrative) and, during the same period of time, worked on listed-building restoration in London’s East End. Moving back to Norway in 1999, she became an editor with Arkitektur N while teaching at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. Today, Helsing Almaas is a senior advisor with Design and Architecture Norway, a government agency tasked with promoting change and innovation through architecture and design. She is a widely consulted critic on national radio and on other media, and has taught at several prestigious institutions in Norway and abroad, including the Snøhetta Studio, with Craig Dykers and Vanessa Kassabian, at Parsons the New School For Design in New York.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Ingerid is not just a critic but a storyteller.

With her deep knowledge of Norway, its architecture and its place on the edge of the map, her Futuna Lectures will trace the thin lines across history, across the map and across architectural practice that might connect the culture of the North to other places and other people.
