When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM TUESDAY, MAY 2

"Architectural spaces can take away or awaken 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 view of spatial dimension, gravity, and time, through a presentation of my various projects." - Go Hasegawa
