JUST HACK IT! FROM PENCIL TO PROPTECH
As Partner and Director of Innovation and Sustainability, Jakob Strømann-Andersen’s professional focus revolves around the interaction between engineering, architecture and modern technology. Jakob also manages Henning Larsen’s unique Industrial PhD program, which co-hosts PhD candidates from co-sponsoring institution, in various R&D projects based on Henning Larsen case studies.
Jakob holds a MSc and PhD in Architectural Engineering and is a LEED / WELL Accredited Professional and DGNB Certified Auditor, specializing in healthy and sustainable design, and is currently working closely together with authorities regarding future building regulations on sustainability topics like daylight, materials, circular economy and urban microclimate.
Jakob will participate in the panel debate ‘Just Hack it! From pencil to proptech’ together with Jan Schipull Kauschen, architect and partner at Vandkunsten and Marie Frier Hvejsel, Professor of construction and building technologies at Aarhus School of Architecture. The discussion will focus on the digital tools and programmes as dominant partners in contemporary design practice. While architects are attending an ever-increasing number of meetings, new technologies are shaping the actual design. Have architects been made redundant by Real Estate thinking, who is really the architect, and who is the client?
The debate is moderated by Asbjørn Staunstrup Lund, Curator, Architect at Vandkunsten.
