Director & Founder,
Eriksson Furunes Architecture
Alexander Eriksson Furunes studied at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, UK, before receiving his masters in architecture at NTNU, Norway. With his studio Eriksson Furunes (www.erikssonfurunes.com) he has initiated and completed a series of projects with communities in UK, India, Philippines, Brazil, Vietnam and China. More recently he completed 'Streetlight Tagpuro' in the Philippines (2013-16). The project was a collaborative process of building back after super typhoon Haiyan (2013), following the destruction of the Study Center that he built with his community in Tacloban (2010). He is currently doing a Artistic PhD on participative planning, design and build processes at the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme (2016-19). His work is a critical reflection on previous projects as well as an exploration of collaborative placemaking through new projects in both Asia and Europe.
