The design magazine Wallpaper* has chosen Danish architect Eva Harlou to be “Best Breakthrough Designer 2007″.

In Eva Harlou’s mind architecture is both handcraft and art. Most of all architecture is framing human life. With architecture comes a great responsibility of trying to understand the human nature. Her philosophy is that architecture has to be both functional, durable and beautiful. Furthermore she finds it very important that architecture reveals a clear and understandable concept and tells a simple story. Eva Harlou doesn’t believe that “less is more”, but she enjoys when simple and beautiful geometrical shapes solve all challenges in a project. Architecture doesn’t have to be difficult and innovative, architecture doesn’t have to look like something exploded. Especially Eva Harlou’s housing-projects have lately drawn a lot of attention. The architecture projects are innovative, genuine and very recognizable with her interpretation of classical geometrical shapes.
