Icelandic Government Policy of Architecture

Íslensk arkitektúrstefna

2014 - 2018


The first national design strategy for Iceland will enhance the importance of design in all conception, development, and manufacture of products, with the aim of strengthening Icelandic companies’ competitive position and increasing value creation.

Prepared by a work group put together by The Ministry of Industries and Innovation and the Ministry of Education, Science, and Culture, the design strategy discusses the role of design in the Icelandic society in the following three categories:

Education and knowledge to develop, promote and strengthen design education

Work and support environment to increase professional emphasis, simplify solutions, and encourage initiatives.

Promotion to instruct, promote and exhibit Icelandic design projects locally and internationally.
