Through selected projects, Panum & Kappel will share insights into their resource-conscious and socially responsible approach to shaping the built environment. The office's architectural practice creates and develops architecture based on circular construction principles, incorporating reused, recycled, and renewable materials.
By employing experimental practices and engaging with local communities, they specialize in the revitalization, renovation, and transformation of existing buildings and spaces.
They preserve, transform, and reuse before initiating new construction, identifying the potential inherent in existing structures and recycling building materials.
As part of Generation Transformation, the practice is committed to minimizing our ecological footprint, with an awareness of limited resources, by working innovatively within the existing built environment, discovering the value of the existing, and recognizing our responsibility to the future, creating purpose and long-term value through circular thinking. The lecture will introduce a series of strategies that define Panum & Kappel's approach to resource-conscious construction, featuring a selection of projects and experiments that collectively provide insights into their work.
