Know-How Session - via Zoom


For our first Architects‘ Know-How Session for 2021, we are very pleased to welcome Jette Cathrin Hopp from the world renowned architectural firm Snøhetta as our guest architect. Jette will share with us an insight into the collaborative process which is one of the major pillars of Snøhetta’s philosophy. Through initial client, user and internal workshops, Snøhetta is able to drive the design process which often produces the most exciting, useful and fresh takes on a problem, giving way to a build project that can respond in kind.

With such collaborative processes at the heart of their processes, Snøhetta and its design leaders are adept at negotiating multi-headed client bodies and bringing together a wide range of stakeholders to a common concensus.

Join us and be part of the discussion on collaborative processes in the design and construction phases of your work. We look forward to your questions and input.
