Artist Talk: Hiroshi Sugimoto at Architectural League of New York

October 30, 2018, 7 pm

For the Current Work lecture series at the Architectural League of New York, he will discuss four design projects:

• Commissioned to restore the 15th-century Go-Oh Shrine in Naoshima, Japan, he created what he describes as “an imaginary architecture” that pays homage to Shinto tradition.

• Enoura Observatory, the home of a cultural foundation Sugimoto started in 2009, doubles as an observatory for viewing the summer and winter solstices.

• Surface of Revolution, an exhibition in the gardens of the Palace of Versailles which will run from October 2018 to January 2019.

• Private Residence in Manhattan, a project in New York City.
