Inside Out: Uncovering Possibilities from within the Discipline
The work of Studio Gang Architects “confronts pressing contemporary issues, acting as a lab for testing ideas on varying scales: from cities to environments to individual buildings’ unique material properties.” This Archi-Salon looks into the new possibilities generated by approaching and exploring aspects of the architectural discipline from new and uncompromised perspectives. The conversation will be focused around uncovering possibilities related to issues of context, materiality, space, and program in architecture.
