Naho Kubota is a Japanese artist who portrays the interiors of architecture schools from all over the world: empty classes, waste materials, study models, books and drawing tools. For the 4. Istanbul Design Biennial, the New York based artist continues her investigation by portraying five schools between Istanbul and Ankara. Instead of celebrating the completed buildings, their volumes and their interior spaces, the Architecture Schools project focuses on the hidden and intimate moments of design. More than the process behind the building, Naho Kubota is interested in the work and life of architects, but without showing human figures in her photographs. Her portfolio is an ode to sleepless nights and delivery anxiety, millions of clicks and hurried lunches.
