In the 1950s and 1960s, Norberg-Schulz practiced as an architect both alone and in collaboration with Arne Korsmo, with whom he co-designed the famous row houses at Planetveien Street in Oslo, where both of them lived with their respective families. Norbert-Schulz became progressively disillusioned with practice, just as his first book "Intentions in Architecture" started to earn him international acclaim as an architectural theorist. He later theoretical work of the 1970s and 1980s moved from the analytical and psychological concerns of his earlier writings to the phenomenology of place, being one of the first architectural theorists to bring Martin Heidegger to the field with serious scholarship and philosophical depth. His book "Genius Loci: Towards a Phenomenology of Architecture" (1979) was widely influential in Europe and the Americas. He is recognized as a central figure in the architectural phenomenology movement. He is also well-known internationally both for his books on architectural history (in particular Italian classical architecture, especially the Baroque) and for his writings on theory.
