Rugged mountains, forests, and coastline: a description of both Scandinavia and the Pacific Northwest.

Join me on Saturday, April 13th for a rapid-fire review of Scandinavian architecture, urbanism, landscapes, and foods that would be right at home in the Pacific Northwest. Ranging from Copenhagen to the Arctic Circle and developed over six weeks of travel on public transit, the presentation illustrates ideas at play in the Nordic countries, aiming to inspire local designers and planners in their own pursuits.

Moreover, there will be housing crises, a gut-wrenching climb up the fjords, and a gong in the strangest of places.

Scandinavian Design: Lessons for the Pacific Northwest from Copenhagen to Kirkenes will be presented at the Scan­di­na­vian Community Centre at 4:00pm on Saturday, April 13. The presentation is part of the annual Nordic Spirit heritage photo festival put on by the Scandinavian Cultural Society.
