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.

This event is brought to you by the Center for the Study of Asia and the Department of the History of Art & Architecture, as part of International Education Week, a university-wide celebration of BU's global engagement.
