Event text

In September 2018 three well-known architects from Norway and Denmark will be on stage at the Vulkan Arena, Oslo. They will talk about their personal experiences and important creative periods within their work and, as always at „Architects, not Architecture“, not a word may be lost about their projects themselves.

„Architects, not Architecture“ – as the name suggests – provides a glimpse of the great personalities of architecture. The event series is not about the projects of the architects, but the people behind, their professional backgrounds, and formative individual experiences, that shaped the projects we all know.

The three following architects will present themselves on stage in the Vulkan Arena with a 20mins. lecture. After each speech the host Fermín will welcome his guests for a short interview:

Kjetil Thorsen, co-Founder of Snøhetta, Oslo/New York/Innsbruck/San Francisco, www.snohetta.com

Siv Helene Stangeland, co-Founder of Helen&Hard, Stavanger/Oslo, www.helenhard.no

Stig L. AnderssonFounder of SLA, Copenhagen/Aarhus/Oslo, www.sla.dk.

Let´s spend a wonderful evening together, seizing the opportunity to get inspired and gain some new perspectives!

This event is kindly supported by our partners SchücoJungGrohe and BoConcept.
