About the Lecture:
Johansen Skovsted Arkitekter sees structure as a lively part of the space it makes by placing and connecting components that are both readable and relatable and strongly contribute to a particular spatial character. In the lecture, we will present a range of selected projects. About resistance in the building processes which inspires us to play with materials and techniques. About structure as a readable and relatable part of the space it makes. About things we have ready to hand in nature, on location and in the way we build.
