Three main themes are in focus for the RISING Architecture Week 2017: Materials, The City and The Society. But more importantly: You are invited to participate in finding the challenges of tomorrow that should be the content of the festival!
Danish JJW Architects has utilised the world's first Cradle to Cradle certified cement-free mortar from the Danish company KALK to build the extension and renovation of Katrinedals School in Copenhagen.
It contains the popular as well as the posh. It tells a story of the past and present. It has been burried, but has been resurrected in new splendour. Wallpaper is having a renaissance – as a modern statement in interior decor as well as an important link to times past.
Jasper Morrison, designer, about Gert Kjeldtoft: Kjeldtoft were recommended to me by the owner of the wonderful Fredericia Furniture, makers of many Danish classic furniture designs. I was looking for a very high level of craftsmanship for a demanding client who wanted the best and insisted on a Danish carpenter. The resulting quality of joinery in the finished piece was remarkable, far better than I or the client had expected, and I greatly appreciated their ability to work around the inevitable problems. If it's quality and efficiency you're after, go see Kjeldtoft.
