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. We strongly believe that we all need positive input in this extraordinary situation.

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. Each day, we will add a new video alternating daily 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 #01: 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.

This talk is presented with the support of BoConcept. 
In his talk, Todd Saunders says „nature is your friend and has all the answers“. That might be challenging on days like these, where we spend a lot of time in our apartments (#stayhome). Furniture like the Chelsea collection designed by renowned Karim Rashid might help you with that. 

“For twenty years I was living in New York. A lot of the new condominiums tend to be small and when you’re living in a small space, less is more. You need a soft environment and space to breathe, relax, socialise and work.” says the designer Karim Rashid.

The Chelsea sofa and chair are crafted using cold-cure foam over a steel frame and high-quality springs. The state-of-the-art specification allows for precise 360-modelling, zero foam sagging and exceptional comfort. You can BoConcept’s brand book here: Link.
