Léonie Geisendorf Architectural Award 2018 to Sofie Tidstrand
As part of the Diploma Degree Ceremony on Friday, the Léonie Geisendorf Award was presented to Sofie Tidstrand for her exploration and architectural interpretation of Edith Södergrans poetry.
The Diploma Project is entitled “An Architectonic Interpretation of a Poetic Universe” and the jury summarised it as “ a powerful and eccentric architectural sculpture that manifests its right to a place in the urban fabric, a liberal architectural manifesto that makes Edith Södergran present on Södermalm, by embedding reflections on place, movement, symbolism, politics and gender.
