Óskar Örn Arnórsson is a New York/Reykjavik based architect and architectural historian.
He is a newly appointed lecturer at the Iceland University of Arts and a PhD student at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP), where he is in the final stages of writing a dissertation titled “Architectures of the Marshall Plan in Europe, 1948-1952.” In the dissertation, Oskar looks at how the US governed “Western Europe” through the built environment in the years after WWII, through an analysis of case studies in West-Germany, France and Greece.
