Interwiew with Knut Eirik Dahl and Kjerstin Uhre by Ingerid Helsing Almaas.
"Through the past 10 years, Knut Eirik Dahl and Kjerstin Uhre have made a singular contribution to architecture. Not only through their innovative building projects, but also in the spaces they have construdted for the discourse surrounding urban development and culture in their home city of Tromsø. Tromsø has become the testbed of their search for and engagement of other sources of knowledge than those conventionally involved in urban planning.
And the politicians are responding: In 1995 they approved the experimental Game of Tromsø - excavations in the city of the future, and in 2005 the city council voted to halt all ongoing planning activities and call a one-year time-out to reassess the direction of the local development."
