I decided to use this chance to experience life in another European country and was able to find work with EFFEKT Architects in Copenhagen.
http://ifcus.org/index.php?3x=3x The highlight of my time at EFFEKT was being able to work on designs for a skatepark in Lemvig, a small town in the north of Jutland. This project was part of a national television programme, and ran across four months of busy work from concept to completion. As a culmination of this effort, I travelled to Lemvig with a few other members of the team to help finish the build and landscaping, in preparation for the public opening.
I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to travel around Denmark, Germany, and Sweden – seeking out intriguing examples of contemporary and twentieth century architecture. In particular, I was fascinated by the work of modernists from Jørn Utzon to Sigurd Lewerentz, and loved seeing their buildings sensitively embedded within the nordic vernacular.
