Thomas Daniell Lecture

GIA Talk Lecture Series

An Anatomy of Influence: New Directions in Japanese Architecture

Time: 2019.10.31 (四) 7-8:30pm
Venue: HA105
Speaker: Thomas Daniell, Professor in Architecture Theory and Criticism

About “Architectural History, Theory, and Criticism” in Kyoto University:

As the increasing sophistication of design and construction technologies removes almost every limitation on what we build, there is a corresponding need to develop an intellectual and conceptual basis for why we build. Based on close readings of texts, images, and buildings, our research is intended to produce a theoretical understanding and critical positioning with regard to developments in contemporary Japanese architecture, placing it within a wider context of art, culture, politics, and economics. Student output comprises both critical writing and experimental design.
