‘Designing for the Senses’ is the title of new Daylight Talk presenting Thai architect Boonserm Premthada, founder of the architectural practice Bangkok Project Studio.
Boonserm Premthada argues that architecture is the physical creation of an atmosphere, serving to heighten our awareness of our natural surroundings. In this lecture, he will discuss a variety of his work, considering the manipulation of light, shadow, wind, sound, and smell, alongside the socio-economic and cultural agenda, with many of his projects including programs to improve equality.
The talk will take place on 18 March 2021 at 16:00 (CET) and it will be transmitted live from Bangkok Project Studio.
The planned duration is 45 minutes, followed by an open 30 minutes of Q&A session. Participation at the event is free.
