Nordic Architecture on Tour - Denmark
1st lecture "Danish Landscape Architecture – Before and Now" - In partnership with Vlaams Architectuurinstituut
The first event focuses on Denmark and especially on landscape architecture. Traditionally, Danish landscape architects are known for their strong expertise on the integration between open spaces and cities.
First lecturer of the event, landscape architect Annemarie Lund, is the author of numerous books and guides on landscape architecture, including the Guide to Danish Landscape Architecture. Lund will focus on the grand master of Danish landscape architecture, C. Th. Soerensen, and on how his legacy has influenced contemporary architects.
The second speaker is Jeppe Aagaard Andersen, an experienced lecturer and awarded landscape architect, who will present a selection of his recent projects, including Kronborg Castle in Elsinore, Denmark. He will also discuss some of the challenges that Flanders is currently facing, such as increased urbanisation and the complexities of a densely populated region.
This event is part of the annual Architecture Festival of Vlaams Architectuurinstituut, taking place at the International Arts Campus deSingel. An informal gathering for local and Nordic professionals will follow the first lecture.
