Nedregate Culture District review by Gaute Brochmann in Morgenbladet #7 2014
The exhibition at the Nordic Pavilion has been titled FORMS OF FREEDOM: African Independence and Nordic Models. The exhibition will explore and document how modern Nordic architecture was an integral part of Nordic aid to East Africa in the 1960s and 1970s. The resulting architecture is of a scope and quality that has not previously been comprehensively studied or exhibited.
Panel debate: Gary Bates, Johanne Borthne, Joakim Skajaa and Hans Martin F. Halleraker. Debate moderated by Kosha Ahmadi and Astrid Fadnes
