Home Edition 2020
Let’s keep the culture life alive! Inspiration in times of Covid-19.
Our 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 a new idea that is meant to lift your spirits and provide you with some genuine inspiration – at your home. This way we could contribute with something positive to this extraordinary situation.
From today 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. Each day, we will alternate between talks in German and English. Stay tuned!
You can also send us a short mail if you want to receive a daily or a weekly notification.
TALK #02: Todd Saunders
About Todd Saunders
Todd Saunders is a Canadian architect who founded the studio Saunders Architecture based in Bergen, Norway, in 1998. The award-winning firm has completed cultural and residential projects around the world, with a bold modern aesthetic that combines a strong sense of place with an emphasis on craftsmanship and meticulous detailing. Every project represents a carefully managed relationship between architecture and nature.
This respect for remote, spectacular and often challenging sites is paired with a strong social ethos and belief in the role of architecture as a meaning of invigorating and sustaining communities. His projects include the Fogo Island Inn and artists’ studios in Newfoundland, Canada, the Illusuak Cultural Centre in Nain, Labrador, Canada, and the Solberg Tower on the Norway-Sweden border demonstrate this multi-layered approach.
AnA Oslo 02 – On September 19, 2019 we welcomed two Norwegian and one Canadian (Bergen-based) architect. Einar Jarmund, Kari Nissen Brodtkorb and Todd Saunders were on the stage of the Vulkan Arena in Oslo.
