ELIN EYBORG LUND
Architect MAA, UK/ARB, MA Performance Making


UPCOMING PROJECTS

Sep 2016- Book and Performance project 'Attending Spaces'
Sep 2017 The book is research by practice, and will include documentation of a performance taking place from 23-29th of June, followed by a workshop at Goldsmiths University.

The book and performance investigates how we can use movement and task making as an alternative to the conventional tools of the architect as a more immediate medium to describe and challenge our perception on place and space.

The book is in collaboration with Will Alsop director of ALLDesign and Anna Furse convenor of Performance Making at Goldsmiths University.

The project is supported by Statens Kunstfonds Legat- og Projektstøtteudvalg for Arkitektur, Share Your Practice, (The Danish Arts Foundation, architecture, Share Your Practice), and Dreyers Fond.
