Starting from their interest in architecture as a means to explore contemporary society and to negotiate established cultural patterns, Bolle Tham and Martin Videgård will discuss some of the ideas on the parallel and conflicting contexts that have produced T&Vs built work and projects since 1999 when they co-founded Tham & Videgård Arkitekter.
