Janike Kampevold Larsen is a post doctoral fellow at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design where she works with the relationship between architecture and nature. Larsen is currently writing a book about the ongoing Tourist Route Project which comprises 18 scenic byways throughout Norway. Mountains, fjords and coastline frame the travel experience. Bold architecture placed in magnificent natural scenery gives the attraction its special character.

Craig Dykers received his Bachelors in Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin in 1985, and co-founded the transdisciplinary architecture, landscape and interiors company Snohetta in 1989. Since then, he has worked to create several regional offices for Snohetta in Egypt, England and New York City. Most notable of Snohetta’s projects are the Alexandria Library in Egypt, the National Opera and Ballet in Oslo, Norway and the soon to be completed National September 11th Memorial Museum Pavilion at the World Trade Center site in New York City.

Following the program we will gather for drinks and light hors d’oeuvres in the lobby.
