The first section of the November 2018 issue of a+u features Norwegian and Danish architects, united in their approach to designing sustainably with nature. With Norway and Denmark at the forefront of the conversation about global climate change, and intimately aware of effects such as glacial melting, their cities have come to cultivate a building culture that responsibly adapts to environmental conditions—and one that prioritizes community engagement and urban inclusivity.

Through our conversations with local architects and critics, who bring forth a spectrum of sustainability concerns in the region, we also use this issue to contrast building in Norway and Denmark with architecture’s relationship to climate change in Singapore—looking specifically at a transformative rail corridor development.
