Thomas Daniell in Conversation

An Anatomy of Influence

Series: Book Launch and Lecture
Date: Wednesday 28 November 2018
Time: 18:30
Venue: AA Lecture Hall

An Anatomy of Influence comprises essays, conversations, translations, and archival images that together elucidate the theory and practice of 12 leading Japanese architects: Hiromi Fujii, Terunobu Fujimori, Hiroshi Hara, Itsuko Hasegawa, Osamu Ishiyama, Arata Isozaki, Toyo Ito, Kengo Kuma, Kazuyo Sejima, Kazuo Shinohara, Shin Takamatsu, and Kiyoshi Sey Takeyama. The vast accumulation of biographical detail shows how these architects have absorbed and responded to the work of their peers and predecessors. Rather than the exquisite yet autonomous objects of the buildings themselves, the emphasis is on the febrile environment of intellectual, social, economic, political, and technological change within which they were produced.

Thomas Daniell is professor of architectural theory and criticism at Kyoto University.

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
