We can’t wait to experience the brilliance of Jørn Utzon tomorrow with Joseph Langman‘s overview of the acclaimed Danish architect.
Generations have been captivated by his designs–from the world-renown Sydney Opera House to many other awe-inspiring structures.
At LHC Design we aim to cultivate a culture of innovation that inspires curiosity and supports creativity. As part of our focus on design excellence, our architects and designers run a series of in-house workshops and CPD’s that glean inspiration from their passion and experience.
Joseph, known to us as Joe is one of our project architects. He offers a unique insight informed by his studies in architecture at Aalborg University, Denmark, where Utzon grew up. Joe regularly attended lectures, presentations, exhibitions and group discussions at the famous Utzon Center. The centre is not a museum, but a place for socialising and sharing ideas, where people can meet up and discuss ideas for the future.
Navigating 8 of Utzon’s key projects, Joe brings a personal perspective, privileged insight and local knowledge. Ranging from private residential spaces such as Utzon’s house in Hellebæk, Denmark, to large-scale public spaces like the Sydney Opera House and the Bagsværd Church in Copenhagen.
It’s no surprise that Jørn Utzon was honoured with a World Heritage site for his iconic Sydney Opera House. He stands as only the second person in history to have received such recognition during their lifetime – an accomplishment well deserving of our admiration!
We are constantly looking at effective ways to inspire Design Excellence and integrate a range of workplace activities like this one, alongside design reviews, stimulating debates, and mentoring.
On this premise, Joe is ready to take this show on the road and share his knowledge! He’ll be visiting different LHC Studio locations with Plymouth being his next stop on April 5th.
We’re considering opening this opportunity for others to join in the future, so we’d love to hear your thoughts, let us know in the comments.
Best of luck Joe, her er til en fantastisk præsentation! (Here’s to a great presentation!)
