BRDI Presents: Olle Lundberg on the Five Food Groups of Lundberg Design
San Francisco-based Lundberg Design is a twenty-person architectural firm and fabrication studio founded by Olle Lundberg in 1987. With a philosophy rooted in environmental sustainability and “nature-inspired modernism,” Lundberg Design thinks long-term, designing singular places that last, buildings that will outlive the builders and spaces that demonstrate how we can live respectfully within the limits of our Earth.
In addition to architectural design, Lundberg Design utilizes a fabrication shop as part of their core practice. The shop provides a place to experiment with materials and details; a place to build things and emphasizes the notion of craft in their projects. Utilizing process to informs the end result, the act of making is an inseparable part of the design practice at Lundberg Design.
Join us as founder Olle Lundberg discusses the “Five Food Groups” of Lundberg Design: metal, stone, glass, wood and found objects, and how those elements contribute to the unique identity of Lundberg Design.
Olle Lundberg graduated with a Masters in Architecture from the University of Virginia and also holds degrees in English Literature and Sculpture from Washington and Lee University. He moved to the Bay Area in 1980, and currently lives in San Francisco with his wife, Mary Breuer, and their dog Sammy (who also accompanies him to work every day). Weekdays they live in a loft apartment attached to the Lundberg Design metal shop, while on weekends they can usually be found at their cabin on the Sonoma Coast.
Doors open at 10 am with coffee in the Theater Lobby. Program begins at 11 am.
