Go Hasegawa (1977) amazed the architecture world with the way he fuses indoor and outdoor space with each other. In his practice, Go Hasegawa always strives to explore new possibilities and relationships between different realms and builds new connections. In his design process Hasegawa thinks in architectural elements-- such as the attic, the courtyard, the terrace, the floor, etc. He is attracted to the search e type elements because they are anonymous and have a long history.
Hasegawa believes that the purification of the architectural element is an opportunity to get close to the life of man. In his projects he is looking for a new vision of life by mastering the ratio of these architectural elements.
This event is open to current Cooper Union students, faculty, and staff. Room 215F.
