Building China and workshopping UN Pavilion

Even though the blog is hungry for new posts things are not standing still in NoMadSpaceLand. Among the stuff that has kept us busy are a few new publications and workshops.

UN ESCAP and GrAT organized the ICSAD workshop on developing ideas for a sustainable residential program for the Philippine homeless community in San Isidro. The workshop took place in the UN Pavilion of EXPO2010 Shanghai. Samo Pedersen was honored to participate as table host and being able to get inspired by the many creative solutions proposed. The day was also used to celebrate the participants and winners of the 3rd International student competition on sustainable architecture and design leading up to the workshop.

A visiting group of around 45 Danish architects were introduced to architecture in Shanghai at the Building China seminar organized by the Copenhagen Urban Network, Innovation Center Denmark, and the Danish Consulate in Shanghai. Samo of  the SpaceLab was invited speaker at the seminar and contributed with a presentation of the title ‘Speed and Story’. Among others the seminar also offered presentations by the architects Lars Gitz (Lars Gitz Architects) and Jonas Berglund (Kragh & Berglund Landscape Architects).

Even though we get to update the blog a bit in the next couple of days this does not mean that we are retiring from our space travels in the late fall. Therefore keep visiting our blog. Thank you.
