Architecture Competition Iceland Cave Tower Honorable mention – Barbara Drud Henningsen

Barbara Drud Henningsen from Denmark

I graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Architecture in 2016. After working for 4 years as a project leader for “WE Architecture”, I decided to start my own studio in August 2020.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/ individuals have been involved?

My current portfolio consists of a range of small- and big-scale housing projects, landscape, and cultural buildings, all located in Denmark.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Architecture has the ability to improve social interaction, mental wellbeing, and productivity.

Climate change and fast urbanization are reshaping our environment and call for action and awareness in the built reality.

It is therefore the responsibility of us as architects to find the best possible aesthetic, social, and environmen tally friendly solution.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

Architecture competitions give me the opportunity to test ideas/concepts and allow for a creative and playful design.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?

Choose competition, project type, program, etc. in relation to your knowledge, interests, and previous experience.
