The faculty is among NTNU's biggest contributors to cultural life in Trondheim, nationally and internationally. Our staff and students create art and architecture of high quality displayed at exhibitions or public places. We also host national exhibitions.

It is mandatory for our architecture and art students to participate in a public exhibition at the end of the study program.

Seminar and conferences

We organize seminars and conferences related to our academic priorities on a regular basis. In addition, we are partner in the Røros seminar - TAF international celebration of Architecture and associated partner in Oslo Architecture Triennale.

Through research center ZEB (The Reseach Centre on Zero Emission Buildings) we organize the famous annual ZEB conference with participants from home and abroad. The series is a collaboration with Trondheim municipality, Trebyen Trondheim and Framtidens byer. We also offer breakfast seminars KLIMAX, a meeting series on climate and environmental challenges in the built environment.
