Helen & Hard Relational Design Based in the coastal Norwegian city of Stavanger, the design partnership Helen & Hard has developed their principles of ‘relational design’ over fifteen years of practice. Each project responds to social and ecological site conditions—witness Geopark, an urban playground bricolage assembled from the detritus of the region’s oil industry.
