Exhibition “Community - Co-design -  Architecture” in Hanoi

The project is researched and developed by Norwegian architect Alexander E. Furunes under Norwegian Artistic Research Program.
The event focuses on questions: What can architecture do? How can the way it’s made have an impact beyond the building itself? And who should eventually benefit from the project?
There will be a series of talk shows, presenting a co-project by Alexander E. Furunes and the “Action for Lung Tam” team that will develop Lung Tam Handmade Linan Fabric and Textile Cooperative to support more than 400 women.
Alexander E. Furunes started his studies at NTNU, Norway and continued at the AA School of Architecture in London. He received his master’s degree in architecture from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in January 2014.
He is also one of three founders of WORKSHOP architecture, a collective of architects and engineers that explore the potential of engaging communities in creative processes in design and build projects.
Action for Lung Tam is a crowd-sources project, aiming for enabling of inner strength and potential of Lung Tam Handmade Linen Fabric and Textile Cooperative.
The exhibition runs until August 5.
