Kasper Guldager is a partner in 3XN and director of GXN, the innovation unit at 3XN. GXN was established in 2007 to exploit the possibilities that arise when applying the latest knowledge and technology into design and architecture. The mission of GXN is to develop a building culture that positively affects the world we live in–both architecturally and environmentally. Kasper is passionately engaged in research and development on sustainable design, digital processes and new materials. He sees a great potential in these areas and wants to take part in its exploration. In the space of a few years he has become a spokesperson for the shape of future architecture, focusing on new business areas and integration of new materials and green technologies.
