Space.City: Studio Granda lecture
Steve Christer  established the architectural office Studio Granda with Margrt Harardttir In 1987, as a result of winning the open competition for the design of the Reykjavk City Hall.

Steve has lectured widely, has served on many competition juries and has taught occasionally. In 1992 he was the codirector of the 'Rafha' architecture workshop in collaboration with AHO, in 1994
a guest professor at the Berlage Institute and from 1994-1995 a tutor at the Architectural Association.

On the soft grip of architecture, he says:
beyond these basic needs is a higher plateau. Places that attract beyond their physical attributes and quality of material. Places that resonate in harmony with their usersAlthough we all know such places, what makes them special is elusive.  Architects have the enviable task of making places, a requirement that is often forgotten amongst the fast-tracking demands for cubic meters and ventilation frequencies in a typical brief.
Every point on our planet has qualities just waiting to be discovered; sometimes cultural or historical or physical. Even the apparent lack of any attributes can be a defining mark. By knowingly working within the web of these elements a building can provide the needed volumes while simultaneously enhancing the context that it is created within. Architecture need not bow to its ethereal foundation but should grip it, softly.
