A presentation to say thank you for the Paul Harris Fellow.

I de senere årene har stadig flere unge, nordiske arkitekter engasjert seg i prosjekter i utviklingsland.

Med fokus på sosialt ansvar, bærekraftige materialer og lokale prosesser, bygger de klima- og kulturtilpassede bygg for, og med lokalsamfunnet.

Line Ramstad fra bistandsorganisasjonen Gyaw Gyaw og Helena Sandman fra Hollmén Reuter Sandman Architects forteller om sine erfaringer og prosjekter i blant annet Thailand, India, Senegal og Tanzania.

Arrangementet er en del av utstillingen «Et sted å være. Norsk samtidsarkitektur 2011–2016». Utstillingen presenterer 25 utvalgte prosjekter fra de siste fem årene tegnet av norske og internasjonale arkitekter i Norge, samt prosjekter i utlandet tegnet av norske arkitekter.

The Pan-American Architecture Biennal is one of the largest and most important architecture events in South America and has been organized every second year since 1978. The 5 days long event provides a platform for discussions, exchange of knowledge and concepts, and aims to give a statement of current international trends in the world of architecture.
The biennial attracts attention from the world of architecture and 18 international architects were present; giving lectures about their work and philosophy. The theme of the 2014 biennial was “From the house to the city, from the city to the house”, and there were 5 sub-categories, one for each day.

Line represented Gyaw Gyaw, under the theme “From Individual to Community”, addressing topics such as how to build citizenship from social interest, social inclusion and the right to be in the community/the community as a social construct.

Prizes

From The Curry Stone Design Prize website: The Curry Stone Design Prize is awarded each year to honor innovative projects that use design to address pressing social justice issues. Supported by the Curry Stone Foundation, the Prize highlights and rewards projects that improve daily living conditions of people in communities around the world. Projects may provide shelter and clean water or address humanitarian crises impacted by environmental or climate change. The Prize acknowledges work that is considered emerging in the professional and public consciousness.

This year, in honor of our 10th anniversary, we’ve assembled a group of 100 of the most compelling social design practitioners of the last decade. A project we’re calling The Social Design Circle. These are practices which have captivated and inspired us over the years, as we’ve built a global community of visionaries, activists and game changers. Each Circle member will receive an honorarium and an award, and as the year progresses, we’ll be highlighting their practices on our website.

Gyaw Gyaw is proud to be recognised as one of these.

Line received the Paul Harris Fellow from Jessheim Rotary club for her efforts in Gyaw Gyaw. Jessheim Rotaryclub has followed her work since the start in 2008 and have been dedicated supporters ever since.
