The Laka Perspectives program is a series of books of interviews with experts in architecture and design, innovation, and technology, developed under the aegis of the Laka Foundation. The vision behind Laka Perspectives is to raise awareness and emphasize the role of innovation and new technologies in architecture and design. Each year, a new book of interviews touching upon essential topics for architecture and design features world-renowned experts in the fields of architecture, design, innovation, and technology, and reaches a broad network of architects, designers, companies and organizations worldwide. Laka Perspectives vol. 3 is intended to focus on solutions that are capable of adapting and responding to the changing conditions. These solutions are lasting and sustainable, actively support collaboration between societies, and are often developed in interdisciplinary teams combining new findings from the fields of science, technology, education, culture, charity, community, natural and built environment. The speakers of Laka Perspectives to date include Toyo Ito (Toyo Ito & Associates), Yona Friedman, Nathalie de Vries (MVRDV), Tobias Wallisser (LAVA), Maria Aiolova (Terreform ONE), Amandus S. Sattler (Allmann Sattler Wappner Architekten), Doris Kim Sung (DOSU studio), Danit Peleg, Qun Dang (MAD Architects), and more distinguished experts in innovative and sustainable architecture and new technologies around the world.
The books are published by the Laka Foundation in partnership with Solarlux GmbH.
