Haugen/Zohar Arkitekter is an Oslo based practice established in 2005, by architect and artist Marit Justine Haugen and architect Dan Zohar. In our work we aim to question relationships between architecture, function, and art, by integrating the disciplines of landscape - architecture and sculpture. Our body of work conveys the necessity to establish links between past and future, culture and memory, between people, their stories and their surroundings. Concerned with political, social and environmental urgencies of contemporary society, our work focuses on the translation of such urgencies into spatial and material forms of action. These forms of actions have to do with social engagement and participation; they have to do with the environment and expressivity of territories; they have to do with conflicts, needs and visions in our dynamic society. These forms of actions have to do with empathy.
