INTBAU Scandinavia is based in Oslo, Norway, but welcomes INTBAU members from all Scandinavian countries. The chapter was set up in 2005 by Audun Engh, Arne Sødal, Olav Bjerve and others, who with INTBAU Board member Petter Olsen have long been supporters of INTBAU activities in Romania and elsewhere.
With help from INTBAU Central Office, the Scandinavia group initiated the Fredrikstad Workshop 2002 and , and with the help of INTBAU Romania, the Transylvania Ecotourism Workshop 2005,
Bran Protected Area Workshop 2005, Traditional Masonry Summer School 2006, and Bran Urban Charrette 2006.
The chapter also organised the 2008 Traditional Masonry Restoration Course in Laslea, Transylvania.
INTBAU Scandinavia has piloted INTBAU's new European Charrette Training Course in 2009 and 2010, and co-organized the 2010 Cuba Study Tour and Havana Urban Design Charrette with INTBAU Cuba.
In 2009-2010, INTBAU Scandinavia will be a partner with the Romanian ADEPT Foundation, in a project to develop facilites for local agriculture and community activites in several Transylvanian villages, funded by the Norwegian government (Innovation Norway).
A study tour of reconstruction projects and new traditional development in Berlin, Dresden and Potsdam will be held from 8 - 12 September 2010. The program will include an event in Potsdam 11 September to mark the start-up of the reconstruction of a large wooden Norwegian building, Kongsnaes, commissioned by German Emperor Wilhelm ll in the 1890s, but destroyed in 1945. INTBAU Scandinavia will be a partner in the reconstruction project. Please contact Audun Engh at the address below if you would like to register for the tour.
With INTBAU Cuba, the Office of the Havana Historiador (the city historian) and other partners, we are planning an international conference on the "Management and Development of Historic Cities" in Havana, early December 2011. We will also hold another Cuba Study Tour in 2011.
INTBAU Scandinavia aims to bring together practitioners, academics, community leaders and general supporters from all Scandinavian countries in order to promote the values of traditional architecture and design and try to find together solutions for the major challenges concerning the built environment in Scandinavia.
