Trade fairs are known for often being a real maze of things. Such that at the end of a day visiting one you may be forgiven thinking you possibly missed the most important novelties. This is not the case at the Architect@work show: Instead of some resplendent corporate brand presentations, the format opts for toned-down displays such as to emphasize innovations and personal discussions in a pleasant atmosphere. This trade fair sets out to be compact, well laid out and informative – for architects who want to find out as much about what is new as is possible in a short space of time. And not only about products, but about their colleagues’ work and current projects.

Which is why Stylepark is proud to join up with Architect@Work in Copenhagen to launch the “A@W Lectures by Stylepark” series. All the lectures will center on the topic of concrete as a construction material.


WEDNESDAY, JUNE June 3, 2015

2:00 p.m. – Kasper Guldager Jensen, 3XN A/S
In his lecture on the “Material World” the architect will talk about new developments in manufacturing materials that have a larger impact on design and construction than hitherto assumed.

4:00 p.m. – Karsten Bro, Arkitema Architects

6:00 p.m. Hans Ulrich Grassmann, Baumschlager Eberle
“Assume responsibility” is the title of Grassmann’s lecture, in which he will discuss the many meanings to the often overused term “sustainability”, for which in the course of its long-standing activities his company has devised its own definition.

THURSDAY, JUNE 4, 2015

2:00 p.m. – Troels Troelsen, Henning Larsen Architects

4:00 p.m. – Søren Nielsen, Vandkunsten Arkitekter
Architect Søren Nielsen will talk on “Concrete – How to approach constancy in an ever changing world?”. After all, concrete is the pre-eminent material used in the Danish construction sector. So how to ready this material for the future so that it can be recycled and re-used?

6:00 p.m. – Matthias Bauer, MBA/S
In his lecture on “Relevant Dimensions – House 36”, Bauer describes the context of “House 36” in Stuttgart, which he designed.
