Copenhagen, Wednesday 28th of February
After a long and exciting 2017 on tour Vestre is finally coming to Copenhagen. We are very excited to invite you to celebrate the first destination of 2018 for the #NLiUS pop-up tour at the GAME venue in Copenhagen.
Nordic Life in Urban Spaces is our way of showcasing what we view as the quintessentially Nordic model of urban lifestyle, highlighting attractive and accessible public spaces to be used by all.
Our products are meant to be a catalyst of interactions between humans, of all social and cultural backgrounds – the term democratic design is something we live by.
Welcome to you all!
Team Vestre is delighted to invite landscape architects, architects, urban designers, planners, leaders, placemakers, developers, engineers, and anyone else with an interest in the built environment to an evening of inspiration and hygge.
Come and be inspired by the lecture of world renowned founder of Snøhetta, Kjetil Trædal Thorsen. Listen to music from the stage by Norwegian talent Hanne Mjøen, food and drinks for everyone. The event is free of charge but, as space is limited, prior confirmation of attendance will be necessary.
Where: GAME København, Enghavevej 82, 2450 København SV
When: 6 pm, Wednesday 28th of February
Kjetil Trædal Thorsen
Kjetil Trædal Thorsen, founder of architecture firm Snøhetta, will hold a lecture on how the Nordic and democratic can be expressed through the created landscape and architecture. Kjetil has since the 80s been a major influence on architecture with buildings such as Serpentine Gallery, Bibliotheca Alexandrina and the opera in Oslo. The firm Snøhetta has achieved international acclaim and frequently wins prestige contracts. Vestre has joined Snøhetta in furnishing Times Square, in a project that has been ongoing since the late 2000s.
Hanne Mjøen is a name that has started to make a buzz in the Norwegian music scene. With singles like “Future”, “U” and “The City”, the Oppdal-raised artist has been on national radio all throughout 2017. Only a short while after her debut as an artist, the highs have not been far apart for the young songwriter. Concerts at festivals such as Vill Vill Vest, Slottsfjell and Findings has put the wheels in motion, assisted by international media such as The Independent.
