Event description

Description

Yoshiharu Tsukamoto is a founding partner of the Japanese architecture studio Atelier Bow-Wow and co-curator of the exhibition Super Tight. In this public lecture, Tsukamoto will discuss the concept of spatial and architectural tightness in the context of Japan, and the work of his practice Atelier Bow-Wow. What is tightness? Is it desirable, and how might it contribute to thinking about the future of cities? This lecture will be followed by a discussion chaired by architects and Super Tight co-curators Graham Crist and John Doyle and including speakers Yoshiharu Tsukamoto (Atelier Bow-Wow), Mauro Baracco (Baracco+Wright) and Ann Lau (Hayball).

Presented in partnership with Open House Melbourne and The Capitol, RMIT University.

As this is a free lecture at a venue with a large seating capacity we have over-booked the event. Please arrive early to join the queue for entry. Doors will open from 4pm and the lecture will begin at 4.30pm. Unfortunately, bookings will not guarantee entry and we won’t have a checklist. The lecture and the discussion will be recorded and available on the Design Hub Gallery website.
