Eriksson Furunes is an architectural practice focused on participative planning, design and build processes through research and projects implemented internationally.
Alexander Eriksson Furunes studied at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, UK, before receiving his Master’s in Architecture at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway. Furunes has initiated and completed a series of projects with communities in UK, India, Philippines, Brazil, Vietnam and China. Together with Sudarshan Khadka and Barangay Engkanto, he formed Framework Collaborative whose curatorial proposal, ‘Structures of Mutual Support’, will be the Philippine Pavilion at the 2020 Venice Architecture Biennale. He is currently doing an Artistic Research (entitled Learning from Bayanihan & Dugnad) on participative planning, design and build processes at the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme (NTNU 2016-20). 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. His project in Norway (titled: Dugnad Days) is currently featured at Oslo Architecture Triennale 2019.
