Haugen/Zohar Arkitekter, Oslo, Norway
Haugen/ Zohar Architects

Haugen/Zohar Arkitekter (HZA) is an Oslo based practice established in 2006, by architect and artist 
Marit Justine Haugen and architect Dan Zohar.

For us, architecture is by its nature, earthbound. Drawn by and for people.

In our work we aim to question relationships between architecture, function and art, by integrating the disciplines of landscape - architecture and sculpture. 

 Our body of work conveys the necessity to establish links between past and future, culture and memory, between people, their stories and their surroundings. Concerned with political, social and environmental urgencies of contemporary society, our work focuses on the translation of such urgencies into spatial and material forms of action. These forms of actions have to do with social engagement and participation; they have to do with the environment and expressivity of territories; they have to do with conflicts, needs and visions in our dynamic society. These forms of actions have to do with empathy.

Haugen/Zohar Arkitekter has received several major design awards including Architectural Review Awards for Emerging Architecture (2009 and 2011) and The Norwegian Form Award for young architects (2007).

About the architects: Haugen and Zohar studied architecture at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Bezalel Academy of Artsand Design in Jerusalem. They graduated in 2001 and 2002. Alongside the practice they teach at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design and the faculty of architecture in Tel Aviv University. Haugen and Zohar contributes as lecturers and external critics at art - and architecture schools in Scandinavia and Israel.
