Mikala Holme Samsøe is an Architect from the Royal Danish Art Academy of Fine Arts. She is part of the daily management of the Henning Larsen Architects’ office in Munich, with responsibility for new projects and the development of the office. She works in the initial project stages and has many years experience in managing complex architectural development processes in both private and public organisations. As an architect and International Master of Leadership and Innovation, Mikala has special knowledge about strategic planning and learning in organisations and she is especially interested in how architecture and physical planning can be used strategically to develop organizations and cities. – In her lecture she focuses on working methods in architecture by showing a case story about interdisciplinary working methods and sustainable housing.
Amandus Sattler is a principal in the Munich firm of Allmann Sattler Wappner (est. 1987). The assignments of this award-winning practice encompass the entire range of architectural activity. In urban planning, public, residential and commercial buildings as well as work in the field of product design, the holistic design methodology embraces the entire process from draft to detail. The work is characterised by the search for a context-related dialogue, identifying with the surroundings at the same time as offering structural openness, appropriate consumption of resources and precision in the execution. Based on an integrated approach, the teams work closely together with engineers, artists and specialists from other fields. Amandus combines his successful practice with diverse teaching positions in Germany and internationally.
This lecture is organised in collaboration with the Goethe Institut Dublin.
