N H D M: Figurations and their Grounds

April 19, 2022 at 6pm

Lecture by architects Nahyun Hwang and David Eugin Moon, partners at New York-based practice N H D M.


Figurations and their Grounds

In describing criticality, Irit Rogoff discusses the state of “double occupation” that at once demands the ability for discourse—to analyze and unveil—and the capacity for the production of new subjectivities in the same milieu. In this lecture, N H D M presented selected projects to discuss the approach of the similar simultaneity in their work, and explore the spaces of new socio-political, and experiential possibilities that working transversally affords.
