Amplitude in the Experience of Space
Date: Friday 9 June 2017
Venue: Lecture Hall
“Architectural spaces can take away or awaken the abilities and sensations that us humans possess innately. Through practice, I have always been conscious of this — how can we expand our abilities and sensations with architectural spaces? In this lecture, I will discuss the aforementioned topic, especially from the point of views of spatial dimension, gravity, and time, through a presentation of my various projects.”
