Fantastic Norway is an architectural studio engaged with building design, development strategies, mobilization processes, teaching and television production.
We believe every town is different; every place is in some way fantastic. Fantastic Norway aims to embrace this fact and through dialogue transform it into architecture.
Fantastic Norway was founded in 2004 by Håkon Matre Aasarød and Erlend Blakstad Haffner. The primary ambition was to create an open, inclusive and socially aware architectural practice and to re-establish the role of the architect as an active participant in – and a builder of society. The heart and soul of the office is a bright red caravan . The caravan functions as a mobile platform for architectural discussions, debates and workshops. We gather ideas, suggestions and stories from the communities we work with and utilize this collected knowledge in the design process.
