Pit Lecture – Architecture as a Vessel of Memory

Architecture as a Vessel of Memory

Thursday, January 30th

6:00pm.

The Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism at Carleton University, in collaboration with the Japan Foundation, Tokyo, is pleased to present a lecture by the cutting-edge Japanese architect Katsuhiro Miyamoto.

Since the mid-1990s, Miyamoto has advanced a built practice rooted in traditions of Japanese construction while pushing the limits of formal and structural experimentation. A series of polemical projects, developed after the 1995 Kobe earthquake and the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, have been exhibited at major international art festivals. Miyamoto’s recent work includes the Shinpukuji Temple Reception Hall (2013) and a competition-winning priest’s quarters at the Chushin-ji temple (2010) in the Japan Alps. More information on his practice is found at: www.kmaa.jp
