Across a range of buildings, public spaces and ephemeral installations, nARCHITECTS argues for the formal and social potential of an architecture that remains somehow incomplete and ambiguously perceived — or in the architects’ words, “almost buildings.” In this Asian Architecture Today lecture, nARCHITECTS principal Mimi Hoang asks if this state of incompletion can impel us to imagine architecture as an armature for an ever-changing daily life.
Mimi Hoang, AIA, LEED, is a co-founding partner of nARCHITECTS, and an adjunct assistant professor at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University. Along with Eric Bunge, she oversees the design and technical development of all projects in the office. Hoang received a Master of Architecture from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from M.I.T. The title of this lecture comes from the firm’s recent monograph, which is available for purchase
in advance through the museum’s online store.
