Design talk: Kathryn Larsen aka The Seaweed Girl
juni 15 16:30 - 18:00
Natural Building Materials
As we speak, Kathryn is finalizing her thesis in architecture from TU Delft Holland. Her work revolves around material research, inspired by traditional Danish and Japanese architecture. Fascinated by building traditions and rare construction techniques of the past, she specializes in natural building materials and creates experimental art installations.
Most notably, her research focuses on how seaweed and seagrass can be used in architecture. Her 2018 thesis, Seaweed Thatch Reimagined was nominated as a finalist for several awards, most notably the 2020 SDG Copenhagen Tech Award’s People’s Choice. In 2021, her collective design and architecture work with eelgrass and kelp was a finalist for the 2021 Green Concept Award, and her project “Kombu Leather” was a top 5 finalist for the Research category of the SDG Copenhagen Tech Award.
On 15 June 2022 from 4.30 – 6pm Kathryn will talk about her research based practice with natural building materials, more specifically her experiments with seaweed and seagrass in architecture and art installations.
