Between 1991 and 1995 he worked as assistant professor, lecturer, and thesis advisor at the faculty of Architecture at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) where he held basic and advance courses for “Complex buildings” and “Project Management” for beginners, advanced, and Thesis levels.

He was a regular thesis advisor in the Faculty of Architecture between 1993 and 1995, a regular juror in the same Faculty between 1997 and 2003, and in addition, a regular thesis juror in the Faculty in the period between 2001 and 2006.

Ramstad was awarded professor competence from the Oslo School of Architecture - and Design(AHO) in 2004. He is appointed as a regular thesis juror at AHO from 2008 to 2011.

Apart from his academic work at NTNU, he was also engaged in his own architectural practice as a partner in “Steen Ramstad Bryn Arkitekter AS” between 1993 and 1995.

Reiulf Ramstad established his own architectural firm (RRA) in Oslo in 1995

Ramstad has received numerous awards for his architectural and design practice. In addition to a number of prizes in architectural competitions, some other prizes included are: “1. Premio Gino Valle” in Venice,” Foundation Norsk Forms prize in Field of Design and Architecture”, and ”The Norwegian Award for Design Excellence”. His furniture design and many of RRA’s projects have been exhibited in Norway and abroad.

He initiated and developed the concept for the first Architectural Triennial in Oslo in 2000. He also represented Norway at the Nordic pavilion at the Architectural Biennale in Venice in 2001.

Ramstad was acclaimed professionally as boardmember of NAL, the National Association of Norwegian Architects, in the period between 1997 and 2000. In 2000-2002 he was appointed vice president. He has served as a jury member for many architectural competitions both domestically and internationally.

Filosofia

Clarity of thought engenders bold design. RRA’s architecture seeks to expose the tension between the local and the global, the natural and the artificial; between virtual and real space and between immobility and change. We believe that it is from decisiveness about the tensions and transitions that great architecture is born.

The RRA philosophy is to create contemporary architecture characterized by clarity of thought. Clarity depends on two things: analysis and decisiveness. The first is a matter of method, the second one of mind-set. When a sensitive interpretation of a location yields a set of essential characters, this opens up for creative decisiveness.

With the uniqueness of every site and context as our point of departure we employ a distinct and limited architectural palette characterized by a strong focus on natural materials and a sense of a location’s individual spatiality. Each project becomes a unique departure when highly individual design emerges from a set of clearly defined and controlled elements. RRA’s architecture is distinguished by innovative tectonic forms that interpret the spatial continuity between exterior and interior landscapes in new ways. This is underscored by material choices and structural solutions that purposely express the possibilities and natural qualities of specific materials.

On a basis of careful attunement to the unique location, a structure must also express global references and adhere to the specific program. We believe that the fault-lines between these two perspectives should be underscored rather than blurred, and that outstanding architecture is defined by clear and simple ruptures that bring attention to the transitions. This invokes presence and attention rather than the ambiguous comfort of familiarity and standardization.

The design-approach further concentrates on function as an open term, and seeks to articulate spatial solutions that reflect both diversity and the notion of continuous change. Architecture must accommodate the restless mind of human society by way of functional flexibility, but at the same time it must counter the acceleration and unrest by manifesting tranquillity and timeless belonging.
