Helen & Hard was founded in 1996 in Stavanger by Norwegian architect Siv Helene Stangeland and Austrian architect Reinhard Kropf.
At the 17th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia – the Nordic Pavilion was transformed into a full-scale section of a solid wood cohousing project designed by Helen & Hard architects in close collaboration with a group of residents.
The exhibition What We Share. A model for cohousing, curated by the National Museum of Norway, presented a framework for designing and building communities based on participation and sharing.
TDC supported Helen & Hard in communicating the stunning pavilion to a global audience via a global media outreach programme and a social media content strategy engaging their existing audience and tapping into new clout via the biennale.
