Lecture Architecture Class
Louis Becker: People, Space, Daylight
Louis Becker is Principal Partner and Design Director at Henning Larsen Architects and adjunct Professor at Aalborg University Department of Architecture and Design. He has been one of the driving forces behind a number of significant Danish and international projects - from landmark buildings to complex masterplans. In 2011, he was awarded the Eckersberg Medal by the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts as a special recognition of his contribution to the field of architecture and international achievements.
At Henning Larsen Architects, Becker oversees a design approach that is context driven and uses space and daylight strategies to stage human interaction. A commitment to social and environmental sustainability is inherent in all Henning Larsen Architects' projects; as society influences architecture, architecture influences society. In this presentation, Louis Becker will present recent, award-winning projects such as Moesgaard Museum, Southern University of Denmark - Campus Kolding, and Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall and Conference Centre – winner of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture, the Mies van der Rohe Award 2013.
