“Nordic architecture is based on the idea of democracy,” founding partner of A-Lab, Geir Haaversen, explains.
Stressing that they want to deliver more “architecture for the people”, he is proud to see that The Wedge is one of a handful innovative buildings that could soon claim the prestigious title Office Building of the Year. “I feel that the architect’s role has been lost for some time. As architects, we often forget to observe the needs of society,” Haaversen says. “Which is why we have made it our duty to create socially engaging architecture for the benefit of the people.”
