Cambridge Galleries Design at Riverside and the University of Waterloo School of Architecture present Jenny B. Osuldsen, partner in Norwegian firm Snøhetta, who speaks at 6:30pm on Thursday, July 15th in the main lecture hall of Waterloo Architecture Cambridge, located at 7 Melville Street South in Cambridge, Ontario.
At Snøhetta, landscape and architecture have developed into a single idea creating a new and emerging spirit for architectural practices worldwide. This equitable approach, which has grown to include interior and furniture design, has allowed Snøhetta to develop a unique focus that both respects and illuminates the often unseen characteristics of context and program. Since winning the well publicized international competition for the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt in 1989, Snøhetta has continued to establish a global reputation for creating important and high quality designs with integrity and timeless character.
Jenny B. Osuldsen, is a landscape architect educated in Norway and the US. She has been working at Snøhetta since 1995 and became a partner in 2006.
The lecture is a companion event to the exhibition SNØHETTA, architecture – landscapes – interiors, currently on display until August 14, 2010 at Cambridge Galleries Design at Riverside. The full colour monograph SNØHETTA WORKS accompanies the exhibition and is available for sale at the gallery.
Admission to the lecture is free, and everyone is welcome.
