James A.V. Bligh M.Arch, B.ASc. “Importing Nordic Ideas and Designs to the Pacific Northwest”

Rugged mountains, forests, and coastline: a description of both Scandinavia and the Pacific Northwest. Join Architect AIBC James AV Bligh for a rapid-fire review of Scandinavian ideas and designs that exist (or should exist) in the Pacific Northwest. Inspired by a summer trip through Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland, the presentation illustrates ideas at play in the Nordic countries, aiming to inspire local businesses to draw from them in their own pursuits.
