Meet Viggo Haremst, new Transformance keynote

Published: Thursday 9 May 2019

Viggo is a Partner and Design Director for Henning Larsen whose major areas of focus include overseeing design development of competitions and projects, client contact, and strategic development of the office on the European and Australian market.

Viggo will appear in place of Mette Kynne Fransden, who unfortunately is unable to attend.

Through a series of case studies, Viggo's keynote, "Educational Institutions as Active Players in Society", will address how educational institutions can "give back" both socially and economically to a community.  He will demonstrate that the relationship between educational institutions and their context is key to designing successful learning spaces.

Viggo will also present Workshop 1B: "Blurring the Lines Between Campus and Cities – Designing LearningInstitutions that Create Impact".

Drawing on his extensive experience as design director for international projects in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, Viggo has a broad international perspective. His ability to head and develop competition projects with clear concepts and an understanding of the local context has been at the root of manyimportant contributions to Henning Larsen’s portfolio.

His contributions to the design of the award-winning SDU Campus Kolding resulted in one of the world’s first low energy universities. Campus Kolding now serves as an inspiration for Henning Larsen’s work on educational buildings around the world as it demonstrates the value of innovative learning spaces
