I am an independent architect living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark, where I have been teaching at The Royal Academy of Art, School of Architecture since 2015.
In the spring 2016 I won the competition for a Pavilion at the art museum Gl. Holtegaard that is now built in their baroque garden. Concurrently I received a one-year working grant from the Danish Arts Council. In the fall 2016 I was awarded for my competition entry “Memorial for the Perished War Sailors 1940–45” and collaborated with director Michael Madsen on the project “Odyssey”, where I have done conceptual spaceship design for a multi-generational journey through interstellar space. My imaginary project “Island of the Dead” was shown in the Danish Pavilion at the 2016 Biennale in Venice.
Since receiving my Masters Diploma in Architecture from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 2014 I worked at Lundgaard and Tranberg, Architects where I was design architect on the winning competition for a “Museum for the Danish Resistance 1940–45” that is currently being built in the historic centre of Copenhagen. You can se that HERE. I also took part in the development of schematic design for the new “Museum of Natural History” that is about to begin construction within the Botanical Gardens in Copenhagen. You can see that HERE.
Currently I am engaged with a project for a house in Sweden and an installation made in collaboration with director Michael Madsen to be shown at Louisiana in the fall of 2018 as part of “Moon” exhibition.

Billeder, tegn og symboler, der fylder byens rum, påvirker vores mentale og fysiske eksistens. Derfor er det stærkeste greb måske at fjerne noget i stedet for at tilføre endnu en stemme til kakofonien?
Den grundlæggende idé ved dette projekt baserer sig på den holdning, og foreslår derfor at tømme den travleste handelsgade i Stockholm, Drottninggatan, for herved at frigøre et tomrum for tanker og associationer. Et nyt rum opstår i kontrast til det omkringliggende miljø og byens informationsoverflod. I forskydningen mellem det fyldte, det tomme og det forladte udpeger forslaget den konstante kamp mellem plads og opmærksomhed i det offentlige rum. Gadens og butikkernes indhold er symbolsk flyttet til galleriet og herved transformeret til kunst, der diskuterer forholdet mellem det private og det kollektive i byens rum.
