SIGN UP & BREAKFAST

The Danish Minister of Culture Mr. Bertel Haarder and CEO of the Association of Danish Architects Ms. Lene Espersen.

Henning Larsen Architects is known for its scandinavian approach to buildings. Light, transparency, sustainability play a vital role. But can these democratic values be exported on a global scale? Are they what megacities in China and elsewhere really need? Or are there lessons that western architects should learn?

In dialogue with Oliver Schulze and Migge Hoffmann, Katherine will discuss how to involve investors willing to forgo an immediate return in anticipation of more substantial returns down the road. Katherine will give you an exclusive look into her work-life experiences, views and ideas on how to deliver long term, sustainable value using ‘patient capital’. How can developers of new city districts help to build and manage environments where a similarly rich and complex city life can develop over time?

Migge Hoffmann, Developer at MH2 (DK)
