Over two days from 29th April 2016, the University of Oslo Department of Art History IFIKK invited scholars for a broad discussion on Norwegian Architecture and Architecture Culture in the 19th and 20th centuries. Professor Mari Lending at AHO lead the first session on Norwegian architecture at the turn of the 20th century, in which PhD fellows Mathilde Sprovin and Mathilde Dahl presented papers. Sprovin´s talk titled ‘Den kongelige Tegne- og Kunst-Skole i Christiania: en arkitektutdannelse tar form discussed the books, plates and documents of the former Drawing School in Kristiania documenting the evolvement of architectural education in Norway. Dahl talked about ‘Portalscapes: Kristiania’s ephemerality at the turn of the 20th Century’ looking at a series of festive urban processions around the turn of the 20th century in Kristiania and their reception, and how they framed and connected the elements of urban surroundings and spaces through their orchestration of movement.
