“We are the creatures of our mental space, a space formed through our life experience.” In this lecture, Professor Leon van Schaik argues, as he has in his book Spatial Intelligence (2008), “that we have a responsibility to uncover and analyse how our histories in space have formed the intellectual and experiential assumptions that are the frame of our lives as professionals and as citizens”. Professor Van Schaik’s keynote lecture addresses the influence of William S. W. Lim over his career and manifold collaborative practices.
