Lendager is a Danish pioneering architectural studio that brings waste back to life by combining commercial demand with pioneering innovation in order to design the world of tomorrow with the waste of today whilest working to design a world without waste.

Lendager brings projects and products to market at scale by combining desirability, feasability and cost.

Ditte Lysgaard Vind will illustrate this with the office’s most recent projects including the two realised housing projects Upcycle Studios and the Resource Row as well as the Danish Olympic Pavilion made of composite plastics waste and build for direct reuse via disassembly as well as the commercial high rise TRÆ (Tree) pushing the barrier for use wood for load bearing elements in a high rise as well as the use of reused and recycled materials.
