Daylight Talk by Liene Jākobsone – Light, Views, Transparencies


The 2024 Daylight Talk series kicks off with ‘Light, Views, Transparencies’ by Liene Jākobsone in collaboration with the Art Academy of Latvia.

Discussing some of the practice’s projects, the lecture will reveal a significant part of the conceptual approach of Sampling: the exploration of how architecture unfolds in the eyes of its inhabitants and what unexpected and unusual experiences it can offer.

Dina Suhanova, researcher at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Design and Architecture at the Art Academy of Latvia will present the talk and moderate the Q&A session.
