Novembertalks #1

Am 30.10 2017 um 19.00 Uhr in der Aula Alte Technik, Rechbauerstr. 12/I, 8010 Graz. Mette Lange graduated from The Royal Academy of Architecture in Copenhagen in 1992. She runs her own office since 2002."The ultimate architectural task has always been to work with our homes. It is because of their scale but also because they are the primary setting for our lives, reflecting who we are and responding to the way we live. My projects are mainly holiday homes and villas in wood construction – always strongly connected to the landscape, enabling a life in close contact with nature. Together with Christian Rejnhold I developed Mini House. A modular house where the basic geometry, proportions and construction are set. Being a relatively economical choice, in terms of the architect's fees and construction costs, Mini House enables us to have different clients. This is very important for me, as in Denmark it is a long tradition to deliver well designed furniture and industrial design for the whole population. Beside Denmark, I have been involved in projects in Iran, Sri Lanka and Iceland. For the last 17 years I have also lived one part of every year in India, where I've participated in "Moving Schools". Floating and rolling schools which come to children of poor and unskilled migrant workers.
