Sergison Bates explores the spaces in-between, and how these spaces are crucial parts of the development of neighbourhoods and a larger urban context.

Sergison Bates architects is an architectural practice established in 1996 by Jonathan Sergison and Stephen Bates. From their offices in London, Zurich, and Brussels, they're behind a large number of buildings that's gained international recognition. A clear interest in the modern European city is expressed through their projects, with a special focus on housing and public architecture.

Jonathan Sergison studied architecture at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London (AA), where he's also worked for, among others, David Chipperfield and Tony Fretton. Sergison has taught at several architecture schools including AA, ETH in Zurich and the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. He’s based in Switzerland, where in addition to the day-to-day running of the Zurich-based studio, he’s a Professor at the Accademia di Mendrisio.

OAF invites you to a screening of "A Special Day" at Frogner Cinema; the film is the curriculum for Sergison's students and gives an insight into a backyard in Rome, one day the city is visited by a very special guest.

The lecture series for the Oslo Architects Association this autumn is an independent lecture series, but will be linked to the Oslo Architecture Triennale's theme "Neighbourhood assignments - (Re)forms for community."

Oslo Architects' Association (OAF) is a local association in the National Association of Norwegian Architects.
