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.

This talk is presented with the support of Petersen Tegl.
Patrik Schumacher self-identifies and references himself through his unique sense of style, his inventive architecture and his extraordinary personality. Petersen Tegl created a solution that is just as original and different. Petersen Cover™ adds a distinctive and modern look to the building while offering all the known advantages of tile.
Petersen Cover™ is a handmade tile product for roofs and facades. The structure of the tiles engenders both robust and modern facades. The transition between facade and roof merges together. Petersen Cover™ can be recycled and is therefore a highly sustainable product. The tiles are easy to disassemble and can be recycled indefinitely. Traditional brickwork requires no maintenance except for the joints which have to be checked after some years. Petersen Cover™ has no joints and requires minimum maintenance.
