Kine Angelo has twenty years of practice as Interior Architect, specialising in colour in architecture. She joined the Faculty of Architecture and Design at NTNU in 2010 where she is currently a full-time lecturer and researcher, affiliated with the Light and Colour Centre and the research group Transformasjon at Department for Architecture and Technology. Her teaching and research activities are devoted to light and colour in the architectural realm, and she is the main teacher on the Master course AAR4620 Architectural Design with Light and Colour.

In the last ten years Kine Angelo has been operating on the interface between research and its implementation in architecture, building on previous and ongoing design practice of interior and exterior projects with an overall aim to promote colour and material gestalt in architecture and urban space through research, architectural education and public outreach. In 2020 she was invited to join the Dresden Fellowship Program conducting joint research and teaching at Die Sammlung Farbenlehre at TU Dresden.

Her contribution outside NTNU is as a colour designer, consultant and strategist and in giving lectures and workshops for educational institutions, organisations, companies and municipalities. She has been working with Norwegian municipalities on establishing guidelines, i.e. colour, material and aesthetic guides for urban development. She is Deputy Leader on the Board of Government of Forum Farge (AIC Norway), and internationally active as a member of the Study Group on Environmental Colour Design (ECD)  in the International Color Association (AIC), where she has regularly participated with oral paper presentations since 2012.

Kine Angelo has co-organised local, national and international seminars, workshops and exhibitions, in co-operation with Helen Hamlyn Design Centre - Royal College of Art in London, Haus der Farbe, Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum, Trondheim Municipality, Trondheim Kunstforening and Forum Farge. In 2017 she succeeded Professor Emerita Grete Smedal in teaching the NCS Advanced Courses at Norwegian Colour Center, Oslo.

Kine Angelo is cooperating with architects and municipalities on a national level, in general on projects related to colour application and urban development. The SYN-TES project, Nordic research collaboration on Colour & Light - interdisciplinary spatial studies, based at Konstfack, Sweden, during 2008 – 2013, brought together researchers from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. Though the project terminated, the established network is active through continued cooperation and sharing of knowledge. Participation in the International Color Association (AIC) has afforded collaboration and professional discourse with researchers and experts within the field of colour and light on an international level.
