Viggo is a Design Director and Partner at Henning Larsen, overseeing competitions, project designs, client contact, and strategic development, focusing on the Australian market.
With over 20 years of professional architectural experience, Viggo has a broad global perspective and is involved in many typologies and sectors, including cultural institutions, office buildings, and education projects across Europe, Asia, and Australia. His ability to head and develop clear concepts and subsequent project processes with an understanding of the local context has been at the root of many significant contributions to Henning Larsen’s international portfolio.
Recently, Viggo steered the winning proposal for the Canberra Theatre Centre, a new home for Australia’s capital of culture that will celebrate the community, its diverse heritage, and artistic expression. Additionally, Viggo has been leading the ongoing Lighthouse at Darling Park project, an 89,000 m2 harbor-front redevelopment featuring a commercial office tower with a human-scaled podium comprised of retail, food & beverage, and a robust green public realm that links Sydney’s central business district to the waterfront of Darling Harbour.
Furthermore, Viggo’s contributions to the design of the award-winning SDU Campus Kolding resulted in one of the world’s first low-energy universities. Campus Kolding now serves as an inspiration for Henning Larsen’s work on educational buildings around the world.
Given his international profile, Viggo is a sought-after keynote speaker who delivers insights into Henning Larsen’s design method and projects at conferences and events globally, with a focus on the future of workspaces in both commercial offices and educational settings.
