Architecture should start in the beginning of any planning process, primarily it is a tool of organizing.
Architecture needs relationship; it should grow on resistance to gain a reflective content.
Architecture ought to be interesting rather than pretty.
Architecture has to be a greater challenge than just making your (old) dreams physical.
Architectural challenges are international, solutions should cross borders.
Architecture must be practiced in an open context in an increasing field of related professions.
Architecture should be exciting, not just satisfying.
Architecture has to be healthy in a wide sense.
Architecture is not just about the money.

Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Arkitekter MNAL was established in 1996 by Einar Jarmund and Håkon Vigsnæs. The firm is located in Oslo, Norway, and recent number of employees is 22.
We are working in a wide architectural range with commissions mainly in Norway but also in other European countries. The majority of our finished works are public buildings and housing projects. We are also involved in urban planning and building interiors; aiming to cover all corners of the architectural field. We are focusing on the independent concept for every single project, avoiding general stylistic approaches.
We give priority to early participation in creative programming and an attentive relation towards the surroundings.
