Sources: Should there be a minimum standard for housing? If yes, what should it be based on? What could be possible instruments to realize them? If not, how could architectural quality be assured?
Sources: Requirements of universal design and energy efficiency have been under critique in the recent years. What are arguments for and against legal requirements for building construction?
Sources: The Norwegian responsibility for housing provision is divided between state (framework for the market, financing via Husbanken etc.), municipalities ( local policies for location and distribution of housing, means-tested groups etc.) and private actors (construction, real estate developers). The roles of the various actors have however changed after the deregulation in the 1980s. How has this change affected the quality of new housing? And what about the architects’ role? (And how is this related to the discussion of the two questions above?)
Sources: Norway has promoted home-ownership in the last decades. How does this housing-ladder-approach influence architecture? What could possible scenarios for a larger rental-market be within housing architecture?
