Home Edition 2020
Let’s keep the cultural life alive! As a consequence of Covid-19, our social and cultural life has been reduced to a minimum and we all need to adapt to this unprecedented situation. Since we have a commitment with you, with the architecture scene, we came up with this new idea that is meant to lift your spirits and provide you with some genuine inspiration – at your home. Therefore, from Monday, March 23rd, onwards, each day at 7 p.m. we will be sharing one of the unique talks from the previous 35 events that we have held during the last 5 years.
TALK #59: Stig L. Andersson
About Stig L. Andersson
Stig L. Andersson founded SLA Architects in 1994. Having studied nuclear physics, Japanese culture and chemistry before becoming an architect, Andersson graduated from The Royal Danish School of Architecture in 1986. From 1986-1989 Andersson moved to Japan with Japanese ministerial research funds. Andersson was particularly interested in Japanese culture’s relationship with substance, space and changeability – fields he has integrated and developed in his own practice since 1994. He is a professor in aesthetic design at the University of Copenhagen and is a much sought-after lecturer and teacher at universities and architecture schools in Europe, Asia and the United States. He has received numerous national and international awards, including The European Landscape Award, The RIBA Award, Nykredit’s Architecture Prize and in 2014 the C.F. Hansen Medal – the highest national honour given to a Danish architect awarded by Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. www.sla.dk
AnA Oslo 01 – On September 13th, 2018, we held our first event in Norway with the participation of the Norwegian architects Kjetil Thorsen, Siv Helen Stangeland (and Reinhard Kropf) and the Danish landscape architect, Stig L. Anderson.
This talk is presented with the support of OBJECT CARPET.
In his talk, Stig L. Andersson not only shares his admiration for some particular landscape paintings and photographs but also tells us how nature influences and inspires him as a landscape architect. Our planet’s nature is a perfectly working ecological cycle that needs to be protected against further destruction.
OBJECT CARPET collaborates with Healthy Seas and has created a carpet that is made of 100% recycled ocean plastic: The VELAA. “Velaa” means turtle in Dhivehi, the official language of the Maldives which relates to the graphic structure of the design that is derived from the sea turtle’s shell pattern. It is available both as broadloom and Acoustic Tiles. By choosing this uniquely blue carpet you literally bring a piece of the ocean into your room while helping protect sea life by supporting the sustainable initiative Healthy Seas through OBJECT CARPET.

Virtual Feedback Cards for the Speaker
Maybe you have never attended our events, but perhaps know this already. Your effort is required! As the speakers share many of their personal experiences with us, we would like to present them a special gift, now digitally.
Please write into the text box below what you enjoyed most about the talk. Our goal is to present each speaker with personal feedback cards, as we do at our events. At our events, we collect the cards right before we start with the round-table-discussion and hand them over in a box at the end of the event.
Please participate! Our speakers love it and we want to continue with this tradition.
Here, we will collect the messages and forward them via e.mail to our speaker:
