We are pleased to invite you to our online talk on May 19th with the architect Sebastian Behmann, who co-founded Studio Other Spaces together with Olafur Eliasson.
Sebastian Behmann was born in Germany in 1969. He has worked with Olafur Eliasson since 2001 and is Head of the Department of Design at Studio Olafur Eliasson and co-founder of Studio Other Spaces.
Studio Other Spaces connects architecture and art through works on interdisciplinary and experimental building projects and artworks for public space. The studio seeks to expand the practice of architecture and aims to find experiment-based methods for designing space.
Behmann worked on major projects with Eliasson, including the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2007 in London, Cirkelbroen (The circle bridge) in Copenhagen (2015), and Fjordenhus in Vejle, Denmark (2009–18), in addition to numerous installations, pavilions, and international exhibitions.
The talk is part of the “Disrupting Patterns” series, multidisciplinary open lessons oriented towards innovation, design, contemporary and future themes.
The talk will be held at 5.30 PM on Wednesday May 19th, 2021.
