Bendik is an architect with a PhD from AHO. His research interests include: housing research (floor plans/spatial layouts in particular), sustainable urban development, walkability and bikeability, network and accessibility analyses including Space Syntax based methodology.
Espen is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Urbanism and Landscape where he studies use of GIS (Geographical Information Systems) in strategic planning. The project is focusing on how geographical information can expose urban patterns and how such information, both spatial and nonspatial, can reveal new site relationships.
After finishing a two-year literature programme at NTNU, Espen started his architectural studies at Bergen School of Architecture where he received his bachelor degree in 1998. He graduated from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in 2001 with his diploma work ‘Byutvikling i Øst; urban prosjektering langs havnefronten’.
