Benefitting from a degree in architecture and industrial design from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen, Sören joined Perkins+Will in 1993. He has found his niche within the firm, specializing in architectural building components and site furnishings. Prior to the 2004 company merger, as Director and Principal Product Designer for the product design branch of the company, Sören designed several suites of bus shelters and street furniture for Pattison Outdoor, one of Canada’s largest outdoor advertising companies, and numerous award-winning lighting products for Philips Ledalite. Since the merger, Sören continues to be responsible for the design and project development of Perkins+Will’s industrial design projects, and plays a significant role as a team member on architectural endeavours—including the firm’s extensive portfolio of transit projects from Vancouver to Toronto to Montreal to Riyadh.
