We just got back from Designer Werktag in Munich. We designed an interior installation for this year’s Designer Werktag produced by Glas Trösch. It was a lot of fun and great to finally meet everyone from Glas Trösch. Thanks to Christian and his team for making sure that the installation came together. The event took place over a couple of days in Munich’s Fruchthof. Each day there were a number of great speaker’s:

SOFTlab will be involved in a series of roundtable discussions among emerging practices from Helsinki and New York. The discussions will focus on the origins of each practice in the two cities. Having watched many of our friends start practices over the years and sorting out our own practice we know that the creation of a studio is often unpredictable, full of temptations, and always interesting. We are very excited to hear and discuss everyone’s experiences.
If you are in NYC this Saturday it will be worth checking out. After the discussions there will be an opening reception for the Newly Drawn exhibition with a performance by one of the moderators from Helsinki, Tuomas Toivonen. All I know is that its called “Urbanism in the House” and what google tells me. If it is half of that it will be amazing!:

Discussions between NEWLY DRAWN emerging Finnish firms and New York based winning firms of the AIANY’s New Practices and the Architectural League’s Emerging Voices.
The roundtable sessions will focus on sharing and comparing experiences of setting up architectural practices in Helsinki and New York. Short presentations on the history and origins of each practice and their work will provide 15 different perspectives on establishing and running an office. The participants will also discuss their architectural motives, influences, techniques and agendas in a “pecha kucha” format.
