From the Publisher. November 2013 issue of a+u is focused on architecture in Norway. Norwegian architects have traditionally searched for a way to build a relationship with the environment and developed their unique architectural expression. Included in this edition are 13 works and two essays that explore how Norwegian architecture faces today's global theme "sustainability in architecture".
