Date: April 11th           
Location: Exhibition Hall, A-building, Sölvegatan 24, Lund, Sweden

A week from now LAS16 - the annual Lund Architecture Symposium - is held at Lund School of Architecture for the thirteenth time. A panel of internationally renowned architects are invited for lectures and discussion with a given topic as framework.

The theme of LAS16 is “How to inhabit the dense city”, which adheres to the challenges of creating architectural qualities in our daily lives in the city. Should we bring known spatial ideas to a new cityscape, or should we invent new ones?

We look forward to an open-minded exploration of this topic where architects from various parts of Europe will give their personal contribution to the matter in form of both lectures and discussion.

You are all very welcome to take part in this event!

Christer Malmström - Head of the School of Architecture, Lund University
