Architect Visit: Albertsson Hansen Architects in Minnesota

November 8, 2010

Christine Albertsson and Todd Hansen met at the University of Pennsylvania while studying for their Masters of Architecture degrees; they have “engaged in a 20-year conversation about their shared passion—architecture—ever since,” as they say. Albertsson (a Scandi by heritage who grew up in Vermont) and Hansen (a Minnesota native who attended Hampshire College in Massachusetts) work and live in Minneapolis, land of Nordic immigrants; together, they create buildings with a strong Scandinavian influence, merged with the simple lines of Shaker furniture and New England Colonial forms. Go to Albertsson & Hansen to see more of the firm’s work.
