Collab: Henry Glogau and Aleksander Kongshaug
Henry Glogau and Aleksander Kongshaug are architects based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Together they studied at Royal Danish Academy, specializing in Architecture within Extreme Environments and delving into the potential of design to tackle current and future global challenges. Their collaboration is founded on their shared passion and driven by a ‘research by design’ approach. Glogau and Kongshaug engage with the world through expeditions to diverse and extreme locations, exploring the interconnected relationships between design, technology, people, and the environment at various scales. Notably, their work addresses resource scarcity and embraces low-tech and passive ideas. Their projects adopt an open-source and design-for-distribution approach, aiming to learn from local contexts and share globally. They strive to foster connections and collaborations across borders, encouraging people to engage in parallel environments. In addition to their collaborative work, Glogau and Kongshaug work as architects at GXN, an innovation and research firm based in Copenhagen.
