As part of the Swedish Association of Architects’ (SAA) annual Architecture Gala at the Aula Medica in Stockholm, Joel Sanders presented a lecture titled “Exhibitionism: Between Art and Architecture”, talking about JSA’s recent work for the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm and how it fits into the themes and issues central to JSA’s practice. He discussed the development of the design program for the furnishings and equipment in the exhibition halls of the renovated Nationalmuseum building, and the objective of creating a display system that negotiates between the different scales of the human body, the monumental building and various works of  art.
