Lecture by Hiroshi Sambuichi and associated partner Alex Hummel Lee (SOLD OUT)

Get the chance to hear the internationally recognized Japanese architect Hiroshi Sambuichi talk about his highly acclaimed project in The Cisterns.

On the day of the autumn equinox, we welcome the winter with a lecture by Sambuichi and associated partner, architect Alex Hummel Lee, at Frederiksberg Castle. The castle is an important part of Sambuichi's exhibition in The Cisterns since a camera obscura sends an image of the yellow renaissance building down into the darkness of the underground halls.

The lecture will be held in English and Japanese. The ticket (60 DKK) includes a visit to The Cisterns either before or after the lecture (The Cisterns will close at 7 PM).

Tickets (60 DKK): (SOLD OUT)
