TOPIC is a young, international collective of architects / designers. Based in Oslo, we work with architecture, design and urban planning both in and outside of Norway. With a strong focus on public space, we seek to develop buildings, strategies and concepts that are research driven and contextual. We believe in creating intelligent frameworks for future users rather than shaping autonomous objects for future onlookers. We seek inspiration inside and beyond the architectural realm and use architectural design as a tool to combine, integrate and employ knowledge acquired from other fields.
