The Danish Architecture Centre proudly presents an evening of star quality when the Australian starchitect Peter Stutchbury visits Denmark.

The event will be held in english.

Peter Stutchbury is highly recognized for his work and has achieved a number of awards. He is known for his innovative approach to sustainability, design and architecture. He began his architecture firm in 1982 and has since been involved in architecture projects all over the world - from designing small cabins to significant university buildings. Furthermore, he has published a range of books and publications and has as a professor given over a 150 lectures at both national and international universities, conferences and festivals. 

Now you have the opportunity to learn more about his two projects Invisible House and Wall House at The Danish Architecture Centre.
Architect Mette Lange explains what makes Peter Stutchbury a starchitect: "He builds in harmony with place, climate and nature. The immediacy between architecture and place, user and climate makes his architecture relevant and inspiring."

If the roof, with water, reflects the sky this building will never be found - until it is discovered."

Wall House, which was initiated in 2007, is located in Japan and build in collaboration with Tokyo-based Keiji Ashizawa Design.
 "The house is not elaborate but focuses on the archaic thinking of protection and shelter, relying upon what we feel rather than know. The wall is a cave, and the adjacent lightweight shelter is a filter from, across and through which light is adjusted. There is a distinction between land and sky, and likewise between private and less private. The building carves its own poetry with few words."
