Gary Bates founded Space Group (Oslo) with Gro Bonesmo in 1999. As architects and planners, Space Group quickly made it’s mark with projects such as Prostneset Ferry Terminal in Tromsø, Vestbane National Library, Filipstad Masterplan, and the Louisville 25-year Vision plan. Gary studied at Virginia Polytechnic University & State University (1985 - 1990). He began his collaboration with Rem Koolhaas in 1992 at OMA where he became a director, and from 1995-1998, a principal in charge of the Asian desk. Gary has been a guest professor at the University of Texas in Austin, the University of Kentucky, The Oslo School of Architecture, and the Berlage Institute in the Netherlands.


The lecture will be followed by a conversation and Q & A moderated by Nader Tehrani and Hayley Eber.
