Steen Jastrup joins DISSING+WEITLING’s management team as Associate.

Steen graduated from the Aarhus School of Architecture in 2001 and was soon after employed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen architects where he gained considerable experience in designing large-scale public buildings. Since 2009, Steen has been an important part of DISSING+WEITLING’s work with infrastructure and buildings all over the world. 

In recent years, Steen has been the driving force behind multiple high-profile projects in China, such as the record-breaking 24-kilometre Shenzhen-Zhongshan Link, which is currently under construction, and Xiamen Bicycle Skyway, the world’s longest bicycle bridge, which opened last year. Most recent, Steen was Lead Architect on our winning proposal for Xiamen Footpaths, a 20-kilometre network of scenic footpaths and seven spectacular footbridges in the southeastern Chinese city of Xiamen.

DISSING+WEITLING’s presence in China will be Steen’s primary focus in his new role as Associate.
