The Architect as a locomotive for welfare?
On March the 12th 2015 we hosted our second networking event. It took place in central Aarhus and featured an innovative chef, an architecture scholar specialised in ‘the common good’, and a leader who works with personifying public welfare buildings. They all discussed welfare architecture and the architects’ important role shaping and modeling the welfare society.
All participants learned more about how architecture and welfare development can go hand in hand. Watch the videos for some key points (English subtitles coming up shortly).
Jesper Pagh, Architect and Ph.D. student talked about how architecture has influenced our welfare society (featured in the video above).
Anders Tyrrestrup, Architect and Partner in AART architects, shared his vast experience in creating and regenerating spaces that promote welfare and wellbeing.
Marianne Weberg, Building Manager, the Health and Care Committee, showed examples of her attempts to add life, soul and human relations to public buildings (featured in the video above).
Mads Nybro, Chef and Owner of Beta Beta, drew on his experiences with bringing different trades and professions together to innovate.
Carsten Primdahl, Architect, Co-owner and Founder CEBRA, moderated the debate.
