In this short documentary, three architects, Julien De Smedt (JDS Architects), Kjetil Thorsen (Snøhetta) and Gary Bates (Space Group) each visit a project site of the others’ around Oslo. At each site, the three informally discuss the project as it relates to the conditions around it; sometimes these are urban planning considerations, and other times the conditions are political or commercial. Directed by Martin Hogsnes Solvang, Oslo Cooking stitches together what must be hours of conversation into a series of smart exchanges that highlight the issues compelling Oslo’s growth. Also, there’s a bit of a pink elephant in the room at the beginning, but I think I can safely say that Julien wins the competition for coolest sunglasses.
