A FEW WORDS ABOUT Maiken Pedersen:

I grew up in Stavanger to a Norwegian dad and a Swiss mom. This relationship with a second country, culture, language etc., always sparked an interest, and drew me out of Norway. After high school, I moved to Switzerland to learn the language better and to find out what I wanted from life.

I have always been a creative person, and wanted to explore what opportunities I had in a creative field. To gain knowledge about architecture, and to see if that was right for me, I went to Krabbesholm Højskole in Denmark for one semester.

I did my bachelors degree at KADK in Copenhagen, at the Institute of technology. During this time, I learned about different approaches to architecture, but found special interest in ecology and sustainability, as well as traditional uses of timber in different cultures. Because I was still drawn towards Switzerland, I was able to attend ETH Zürich as a visiting student for my 5th semester, where I studied under Christian Kerez.

Outside of architecture I like to be out in nature, to explore different cultures, and to cook. I spend a lot of time wandering mountains or beaches, skiing, climbing, looking after the vegetable garden or explore new recipes.
