February 28 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
Speaker: Michael Sorenson– Partner and Design Director with Henning Larsen, located in NYC, NY.
Description: Henning Larsen strives to create sustainable societies where people and nature flourish. Our projects are more than designs; they are solutions to specific challenges. As an interdisciplinary practice working across architecture, landscape, urbanism, interior, graphic and lighting design, Henning Larsen challenges conventional practices to co-create, innovate, and cultivate desirable futures through design. Founded in 1959 by Danish architect Henning Larsen whose legacy we carry today, we navigate the complex connections that bind together our built environment, ecological systems, and societies at large.
At Henning Larsen, we design architecture as a collection of actions, not as objects. Rather than autonomous objects, architecture is a medium for engagement and connection between nature, people, and communities. We will explore the 60+ years of our firm and how our methodology has evolved as our practice has expanded from a small studio to a global interdisciplinary practice.
- Explore various approaches to “people-first design” and how nature and community-driven design are integrated into projects in various cultures and climates.
- Discuss how the studio’s methodology has evolved over 60+ years as the firm has grown from a local studio to a global design practice.
- Analyze how the studio’s Scandinavian roots has informed design work in a North American context.
- Explore key built and unbuilt work from the firm’s global portfolio that demonstrates different approaches to connecting people, nature, and communities.
