This is Ida Relsted
I am an independent editor, writer, concept developer and design thinker focussing on creative processes.
With more than 15 years´ experience as a storyteller – as an editor, lecturer, speaker, writer and project manager – I have an eye for both the larger perspective and the important details. From coining concepts to ensuring that the quality of communication is spot-on.
Often, I work in the field of architecture and culture. I always work with identifying the real question to be solved.
Most significantly, I have authored and edited an ambitious architectural book on the largest cultural project in Denmark since the opening of the Copenhagen Opera: The award-winning new main library in Aarhus, Dokk1 (The Dock). The richly illustrated book “Space for Change. Dokk1 – Aarhus´ new meeting space” offers a unique insight into the visions behind this significant cultural project. “Space for Change” is sold at the LYNfabrikken café as well as in well-assorted Danish bookstores and online.
I hold a MA in Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies, and have worked and studied in China and the US. I am up-grading my skills at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation in Copenhagen. Here, I have enrolled in a diploma level degree in ‘Design Management‘. Focus is on design processes, design thinking, user engagement, change management and theories of learning.
