10 Questions with Kulapat Yantrasast
Interior Design Magazine interviews Creative Director Kulapat Yantrasast:
ID: Art museums are sometimes talked about as if they’re works of art themselves. And in some ways the museum building can seem like its largest sculpture. I’m curious to hear your thoughts on the idea of architecture as art.
KY: People believe that architecture that looks like sculpture is art and architecture that does not look like sculpture is not art, which is a very boring and rather shallow way of looking at architecture. Architecture as art has to be considered on its own merit. I think it’s a tragic situation that people consider architecture as art only when it tries to mimic sculpture, because architecture has its own relationship to people as art.
