LOVE LILJEQVIST

 

Love Liljeqvist has studied and worked around the world to obtain a better comprehension of architecture and experience how different cultures impact architecture.

 

Born in Axberg, Sweden, Love moved to Stockholm shortly thereafter and studied through high school. He started his degree in architecture in Port Elizabeth, South Africa in 2009 for three semesters. Love then returned to Stockholm to continue his studies at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), School of Architecture and received his BA degree in architecture in 2012. Next, Love completed an exchange program at the University of Tokyo (Todai) under Kengo Kuma where he participated in group architecture competitions in both Asia and EU.

 

After Todai, he completed internships at Holzer Kobler Architecture in Zurich, Switzerland and Studio Daniel Libeskind in New York, USA where he continued to participate in competitions in the EU and the US.

 

In 2015, Love received his masters degree with honors in Architecture from Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), School of Architecture and relocated to New York after accepting a position at Daniel Libeskind Architect.
