Welsh School of Architecture

Jacob Hotz-Hung

Preamble:
Architecture is not a product; it is an attitude towards the meaning of life.
The truth and the potential of architecture and its understanding lie in its abstraction.
Built architecture is the spatial experience of our collective mind in time, therefore in contradiction and so a piece of art.

Research interests centre on the development of novel or unconventional technologies in building construction through innovative design in order to challenge our perception…
