So close again for Barr in latest Norwegian church contest

  • Comment

Roz Barr Architects has been beaten in a competition to design a Norweigan church – losing out to the same practice in a similar competition in 2012

Local practice Espen Surnevik with Ådne Trodahl of Trodahl Architects beat off entries from six other architects to the right to design the new church in Porsgrunn, south of Oslo.

The winning designs feature prominent use of porcelain, with Trodahl saying that the element of light was important to the designs (see below).

In 2012, Roz Barr Architects was pipped to the post by Espen Surnvevik in the contest to design a replacement for a burned down 19th-century church in Våler which attracted 239 entries from around the globe (see Roz Barr narrowly misses out on Norwegian contest).

Barr came third in that competition, netting £8,000 in the process.
