This panel discussion responds to Rirkrit Tiravanija's installation, untitled 2018 (the infinite dimensions of smalleness), recently commissioned by the National Gallery Singapore. This panel will discuss how architecture can draw from vernacular cultures to act as relational structures.
The panel will explore how architecture can bring people together in a common space to foster interactions that have the potential to transcend the physical boundaries of the space.
