LAS24 Material Explorations | 6 March 2024 

As the green transition requires a radical approach to the re/distribution of resources, the 2024 edition of Lund Architecture Symposium (LAS24) invites a cohort of progressive architectural practices to explore contemporary tendencies in space and materiality. While the construction industry accounts for nearly 40% of the global CO2 footprint – much coming from the production and waste of materials – LAS24 will encourage a discussion around the transitory landscapes of materiality that the discipline and profession currently are facing. Moving beyond technological optimization, the symposium is interested in the techniques, mind-sets, and material practices that explores aesthetic and structural change in the formation of built environments.

We have invited the following keynote speakers for LAS24 on 6 March 2024:

  • Teresa Blasco | Dorte Mandrup A/S | Copenhagen DK
  • Simeon Østerlund Bamford, Mathias Nørgård | ReVærk | Aarhus DK
  • Justine Bell & Jonas Djernes | Djernes & Bell | Copenhagen DK
  • Siv Helene Stangeland | Helen & Hard | Oslo NO
  • Loretta Bosence | Local Works Studio | East Sussex UK
