Principal architect

Instead of starting with a fixed spatial design objective, I always look for an architectural design concept which can incorporate the process of co-creation with the user community of the project and the possible program changes in time. This does create a tension between the total spatial anarchy which could rise out of leaving all the design objectives up to the different users and the wish to also create an esthetically consistent architectural result. By choosing structures and elements from local nature at the project location as an esthetic inspiration at the start of the design process and a guide towards the final design proposal, a possibility for combining both individual user wishes and realizing a consistent esthetic architecture is created. Inclusive, adaptive architecture, inspired by nature is the design strategy of Panoptic Architects to create consistent esthetic quality as a response to the complex user wishes and constantly changing, diverse society we live in.
