Discovering Japanese Urban Space at the Crossroads of World Design: A lecture by Ken Oshima


Join us for a lecture by Ken Tadashi Oshima, Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of Washington, where he teaches in the areas of trans-national architectural history, theory, representation, and design. He has also been a visiting professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and taught at Columbia University and the University of British Columbia. Oshima is the author of International Architecture in Interwar Japan: Constructing Kokusai Kenchiku, a fascinating and compelling examination of a short but fertile moment in architecture history through the multiple lenses of Horiguchi, Yamada, and Raymond, among other publications. Co-sponsored by the Department of the History of Art & Architecture.
