Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/individuals have been involved?

The work of Norell/Rodhe ranges from competition winning schemes for cultural buildings and landscapes to interiors and installations.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

One of architecture’s roles is to express the relationship between the individual and society at large. The recent pandemic has increased the need for such affinity and sense of belonging.
