Architecture collaboration

I have worked with artists, architects and designers on various projects, working on ideas, looking for the philosophy of buildings, places and conceptual work. Collaborators include, Bjarke Ingels Group, Einrúm, Arkíteó, and others. The projects have won a few awards and nominations. 

2020: Sjávarmál won first prize for new landart by the coastline of Reykjavík in an open competition by Reykjavík Art Museum. Collaboration with Baldur Helgi Snorrason and David Hugo Cabo

2019: Ok Glacier memorial. Collaboration with Cymene Howe and Dominik Boyer of University and Oddur Sigurðsson geologist. Nominated for Beasleys Design of the Year Award.

Memorial placed on Ok mountain where Ok-glacier used to stand. The first glacier Iceland looses to climate change.

2011: Krikaskóli

A hybrid of elementary and preschool in Mosfellsbær in Iceland nominated for the Mies Van der Rohe prize.

“What would happen if we made a school for 1 – 9 year olds, instead of the traditional 1-5 preschool, 6-12 and 13 – 16 elementary level. What happens if you take the culture and education of the preschools, and merge it with the old traditions of the elementary school? And what happens if you put together from the beginning – a group of architects, a schoolmaster and a preschool-master, a writer and the landscape-architect to create both the school and the philosophy of the school? You will get Krikaskoli. “
