Notions of Space
Welcome to Episode 1 of the Ideal Spaces podcast. Flora Loughridge is joined by the founder of Ideal Spaces Working Group, Ulrich Gehmann, and Michael Johannson, who leads New Developments and Digital Design at Ideal Spaces to explore the question ‘What is Space?’. This episode is the first in a series of 10 ‘vignettes’, in which the Ideal Spaces team discusses the driving forces behind society as it is today: not only the built ‘architectural’ world we live in, but also the human processes of social imagination that architecture is an expression of.
In this episode, the contributors are:
- Flora Loughridge
- Ulrich Gehmann
- Michael Johansson
