We are proud to announce our first event in Sweden!!
After hosting events in more than 10 countries, and bringing together architects and fans of architecture around the world both virtually and physically, we are excited to finally bring our format to Stockholm.
“Architects, not Architecture”, or “AnA”, gives guests the chance to get to know world-renowned architects on a more personal level as there is only one golden rule: speakers are not allowed to talk about their architectural projects. This has allowed audiences around the globe to enjoy unique personal content since the format was first introduced in 2015.
On Thursday, September 21, at Kulturhuset in Stockholm, we will bring together three prominent Swedish architects and a Palestinian architect and educator. The trio will talk about their personal experiences and the influences that impacted them as architects in the most important creative periods in their lives:
– Bolle Tham & Martin Videgård, Tham & Videgård, Stockholm, www.thamvidegard.se
– Sandi Hilal, DAAR (Decolonizing Architecture Art Research), Bayt Sahour/Stockholm – www.decolonizing.ps
This event is kindly supported by Equitone, JUNG, and Artemide Nordics.
This was a change in the lineup as Louise Masreleiz won’t be able to join us due to health reasons. We send our best wishes to Louise for a speedy recovery. On a positive note, we’re delighted to announce that Pye Aurell Ehrström, co-founder of Marge Arkitekter and Louise’s partner, will step in to share her own inspiring journey with us.

Get-Together & Drinks
The first podcast of the JUNG Architecture Talks series in spring 2020 was followed by 145 fascinating conversations with national and international architectural firms – about the profession and vocation, strategies and the will to change the world.
Even though architecture usually lives through the power of images, over 5,000 minutes of conversation prove how words can inspire architecture.
The challenge of our generation is to build with a lighter impact. Knowing that the building industry is key to tackling climate change, we as a façade material producer want to do more than just transform our materials. By 2030, we want to forge new and innovative partnerships, trailblaze transparency across the value chain and establish a sustainability council of external experts to stay on track to full circularity.

The event venue
Silent Green Kulturquartier is an event venue and independent project that has found a unique home in Berlin in the historic premises of the former crematorium in Wedding. The heart of silent green is the Kuppelhalle, with its 17 meter tall dome. The architectural layout, pyramid-shaped mansard roof, and the historical terrazzo floor of the hall make it a distinctive venue that instantly turns every event into an extraordinary experience.
