Audun Opdal

Senior Partner and Head of Design, 3XN

As a senior partner, Audun Opdal is responsible for leading the oversight and delivery of 3XN’s major projects. He is currently leading 2 Finsbury Avenue in London, a 35-storey tower targeting net zero carbon; Sydney’s new Fish Market, which is projected to become one of the most visited attractions in the city, sec¬ond only to the world-famous opera house; and Green Solution House 2.0 in Bornholm, one of the most environmentally friendly hotels in Europe.

He is a keen advocate of integrated design methods and believes that great archi¬tecture can only be achieved through a collaborative effort between designers, engineers, and specialist consultants at all levels from partners to interns. Audun is closely engaged with academia as a mentor and external examiner at the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen, and he places a high value on the symbiotic relationship between industry experience positively shaping students’ futures in the architectural field, and the importance of young talent in the development of the profession itself.
