The Department of History of Art & Architecture presents:
“Nihon no toshi kukan: Approaches to the City Invisible”
This talk examines the conceptualization of Japanese urban space at the crossroads of the 1960s World Design Conference, with trajectories leading to both metabolic mega-structures and the preservation of indigenous villages.
Professor Oshima (University of Washington) teaches in the areas of trans-national architectural history, theory, representation, and design. His publications include GLOBAL ENDS: towards the beginning (Toto, 2012), International Architecture in Interwar Japan: Constructing Kokusai Kenchiku (University of Washington Press, 2009), and Arata Isozaki (Phaidon, 2009).
