James Barber is an Architect based in London, UK and Bergen, Norway.

An enduring interest of his is the study of vernacular buildings / techniques and the potential in their present-day reinterpretations - Borrowing from history, not as a form of homage/pastiche, but rather in recognition of the silent knowledge of how these buildings are adapted to local climate, materials & culture.

James Barber is a member of the Association of Norwegian Architects / MNAL
