Lecture by Mathias Brockdorff (PAX architects).

Mathias Brockdorff, architect and partner at PAX Architects, based in Aarhus, Denmark, will be joining us as a guest speaker on Tuesday 2 April at 5:00 pm. His lecture, titled “Meaningful Spaces: Culture as Catalyst for Informal Dialogue,” will be introduced by prof. Paola Giaconia.

Mathias’s lecture will showcase recent projects undertaken by PAX Architects, focusing particularly on public institutions, especially cultural ones. These projects are founded on the belief that architecture holds the transformative power to positively influence people’s lives.

Mathias Brockdorff (born in 1989) graduated from the School of Architecture in Aarhus, Denmark, in 2015. Since then, he has actively contributed to numerous national and international projects, specializing in cultural and residential construction, urban development, and transformation. With a deep involvement in the design process, Mathias assumes a central role in project development and narrative shaping.
In 2021, Mathias became a Partner at PAX architects, joining forces with Co-Partners Mads Lassen and Thomas Bossel. Prior to this, he collaborated with them at Schmidt/Hammer/Lassen architects, working in both Shanghai and Aarhus.
Each project undertaken reflects a commitment to crafting visionary, site-specific, and immersive architecture, aiming to enhance the quality of people’s lives and contribute to the broader community.
Grounded in the Nordic architectural tradition, Mathias adopts an approach centered on humanism, simplification, and craftsmanship. His overarching ambition is to consistently create extraordinary spaces that elevate the ordinary aspects of everyday life.
