Avinor Oslo Airport voted best sustainable building in international architecture competition

At the prestigious WAN Awards, the international architecture competition in London, a proud architect was able to take home yet another award for the Oslo Airport expansion.

Christian Henriksen, a partner in Nordic — Office of Architecture, represented Team_T, the project group behind the new Oslo airport, at the ceremony.

“This is a win for everyone involved in the project and I would again like to thank our partners in Team_T: COWI, Norconsult, Aas-Jakobsen and engineer Per Rasmussen. We also have to thank NSW Arkitektur, and landscape architects Bjørbekk & Lindheim, not forgetting ÅF-Advansia and everyone else involved”, he said, adding:

“But most of all we need to thank Avinor for the wonderful way in which they have worked with us to make this building a success”, said Henriksen, who clearly appreciated the honour.

Huge recognition to everyone involved

“We are very proud of this award. The recognition that we, the architects and other partners have received for the ‘new Oslo Airport’ shows that we have got a lot of things right. Our job in the future will be to make this building even better and provide great experiences for both passengers and staff”, said the airport’s Managing Director Øyvind Hasaas.

This is not the first award which Nordic — Office of Architecture has received for the project. In autumn 2017, the company won the International Project of the Year category at the Building Awards in London, and also presented the project at the World Architecture Festival in Berlin where it was one of a handful of finalists.

The WAN Awards was organised by World Architecture News for the eighth year in a row, with a panel of architects from leading architectural offices all over the world. The awards ceremony took place at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square on Wednesday 28 February.
