Architects, not Architecture: Reiulf Ramstad | Virtual Design Festival | Dezeen

In the first lecture from today’s collaboration with Architects, not Architecture, Norwegian architect Reiulf Ramstad discusses his background and how he originally wanted to become a dancer, not an architect.

Ramstad, founder of Oslo studio Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter, spoke of how growing up with an architect made him want to chose a different career for himself.

“My mother had an architectural studio and I didn’t want to become an architect at all,” said Ramstad in the lecture in November 2019.

“I saw all her depressions with difficult clients, bad economy, too stressed, too much work, quarrelling with my father and not having time with the children. So I wanted to become a dancer,” he continued

“But at a certain point I understood it was not for me, even though today I still love dancing.”
