RMIT Architecture invites you to a free public lecture by 3XN Founder and Principal KIM NIELSEN


Research and investigation are essential to 3XN’s design and allows the studio to push the boundaries of aesthetics and functionality. With each project standing on the shoulders of previous work, 3XN constantly evolve and develop their know-how. As they learn from project to project, the learning is applied in new ways to add lasting value to the architecture and practice.

Furthermore, working in a ‘Scandinavian way’ with a flat structure, collaboration and openness has been and still is key. Ideas are valued, not titles, as the best ideas are achieved when people with diverse professional and personal backgrounds work together in an open-minded studio setting.

This is all summed up in building design that goes beyond function and is realized in iconic buildings such as the new Sydney Fish Market, the International Olympic Committee’s HQ, Ørestad College, Royal Arena and Denmark’s National Aquarium Den Blå Planet to mention a few.

Architect MAA/RIBA, Kim H. Nielsen is Founder and Principal of 3XN. Since the start of the company in 1986, Kim H. Nielsen has been the creative driving force behind 3XN. He functions as the creative director and has overall responsibility for the architectural quality of 3XN’s work from the idea to the final result. Working closely with the Competition Department, Kim directs the group with a high degree of personal involvement in each project. Kim Herforth Nielsen has been involved in all of the practice’s major projects, including the Quay Quarter Tower in Sydney, Copenhagen Arena, the aquarium The Blue Planet, Museum of Liverpool, Ørestad College in Copenhagen, Muziekgebouw Concert Hall in Amsterdam, IOC Headquarters in Lausanne, and the UN City HQ in Copenhagen and many more. Kim H. Nielsen is often called upon as a jury member in International architectural competitions and as a lecturer at art academies and universities around the world. Since 2013 Kim has been chairman of architecture committee at Danish Arts Foundation.
