“I studied architecture in Denmark where it’s part of the art academy as opposed to a technical institution, as is the case in Sweden,” says Petra Gipp, architect and founder of Petra Gipp Arkitektur. “I want to work with architecture as an artistic expression. My aim is to lift architecture to a dialogue about expression and context.” The studio was founded in 2009 and today has ten employees working across a wide range of projects including cultural buildings, transformation projects and residential buildings. A quick glance at the studio’s portfolio is enough to reveal that there are a great deal of clients from within the arts and culture sector.
