Johansen Skovsted Arkitekter is founded by the two architects, Søren Johansen (b.1981) and Sebastian Skovsted (b.1982).
‘Johansen Skovsted Arkitekter is experienced in developing projects from the first sketch to the completed construction. The office seeks to bridge the gap between contemporary building processes and materials, and basic architectural values, through a synthesis of ideas, techniques and manufacturing methods. The office sees structure as a lively part of the space it makes by placing and connecting components which are both readable and relatable and which strongly contribute to a particular spatial character.
‘The office works competently with building heritage as well as in protected natural environments and physical contexts that require delicate responses in both architecture and landscape.
‘Both Søren Johansen and Sebastian Skovsted have studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation (KADK). Sebastian Skovsted has furthermore conducted parts of his studies at TU Delft. In addition to their practice they teach at KADK at the Institute of Architecture and Technology.’
The lecture by partner Søren Johansen and Sebastian Skovsted is the eighth of the ‘Form-Givers’ Lecture Series at The Cass, organised by senior lecturer James Payne.
FormGivers is a lecture series about young practices throughout Europe – confident and inventive ‘form-givers’ who are delivering their first projects. Lecturers will discuss architectural language and form in their practice, research or teaching. FormGivers is curated by James Payne.
