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 #63: Fuensanta Nieto
* Please forgive the video isn’t 4K quality, it was one of our first events (2016).

AnA Berlin 01 – Architects, not Architecture took place in Berlin for the first time on June 15, 2017 with Ansgar Schulz, Fuensanta Nieto and Barbara Holzer. These three impressive architects were, in spite of their admirable trajectories, not allowed to talk about prices or projects.
This talk is presented with the support of Petersen Tegl.
Petersen Tegl is a Danish brickworks which manufactures and sells bricks with emphasis on excellent craftsmanship. As one of the few brickworks in the world, Petersen Tegl masters the art of firing brick with coal. The process adds vibrant colours in pale and dark shades to the waterstruck brick.
More than half of Petersen Tegl’s range consists of 100% handmade products, including the world-famous Kolumba™. Petersen Cover™, also 100% handmade, is a tile product developed for covering roofs and facades. Manufacture of brick for special assignments is a key business area in which the brickworks work closely with architects and construction clients.
Petersen Tegl was founded in 1791 and has been run by the same family in a direct line ever since. www.petersen-tegl.dk
