Johan Arrhov (1979) and Henrik Frick (1977) received their Masters in Architecture from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in 2007. Together they established Arrhov Frick in 2010 in Stockholm, Sweden. Working on a diverse range of projects, Arrhov Frick’s ambition is to develop clear proposals based on a deep understanding of specific social and economic contexts. The practice’s projects reduce architecture to its fundamentals – often with an emphasize on craftsmanship, material and structural economy. Incorporating program and adaptability, the practice’s projects support flexible infrastructures that are capable of future iterations and uses.
Among other honors, Arrhov Frick was exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2016. A special issue on the work of the studio featuring thirteen projects will be published by 2G International Architecture Magazine later in 2018.
The lecture will be given by partner Johan Arrhov. FormGivers is a series of lectures featuring emerging practices throughout Europe, confident and inventive ‘form-givers’ who are delivering their first projects. Lecturers will discuss architectural language and form in their practice, research or teaching.
