James Wilson, Booth Fellow
Exhibition on view: September 20 – October 5, 2016
James Wilson (M.Arch. ’11), will present on his research funded by the Booth Fellowship, and his work will be featured in the Taubman College Gallery. Wilson’s research investigates hygge, the Danish principle of close, cozy, conviviality, within the context of an architectural practice promoting human health and wellness. He attempts to answer, “What about the socio-cultural space of Denmark fosters wellness and sustainable behavior?” The exhibition aims to capture the atmospheric, material and ethnographic phenomenology of hygge, suggesting how architecture might contribute to the cultivation of sustainable cultures.
