The Foundation for Design and Architecture in Norway and the Norwegian Design Council have merged into The Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture. The centre promotes the understanding, knowledge and use of design and architecture from a commercial and social perspective. The organisation will promote quality and innovation using design and architecture to develop surroundings, products and services. We are located in the centre of Oslo and host exhibitions, conferences and other events that promote good use of design and architecture.
