Zago describes his current architectural interests to an audience of Making + Meaning participants. He talks about volumes, sectional objects, weak form and creating a sense of volume through relaxing symmetry. Zago discusses negative space especially and when it is achieved through incision and pressure. He shows his entry in the competition for the National Museum of Korean Contemporary History in Seoul, and other projects. Zago concludes by answering several questions about the work he showed and his architectural intentions. He feels SCI-Arc is not a mere willfulness, but rather a significant exploration into architectural limits.
