This Here Now, Japanese Building and the Architecture of the Individual

March 3, 12:00am - 1:30am
Mānoa Campus, via Zoom Add to Calendar

This talk will show how a range of traditional Japanese built forms responded to distinctive materials, objects, and moments, and will argue that the built acknowledgement of such events can help to affirm the inherent individuality of our own being and buildings in general can facilitate the sharing of the normally subjective experiences of this, here and now. Speaker: Dr. Kevin Nute is an assistant professor of architecture at the University of Hawai’i, M?noa. He is the author of This Here Now: Japanese Building and the Architecture of the Individual (2021), Naturally Animated Architecture (2018) Place, Time and Being in Japanese Architecture (2004) and Frank Lloyd Wright and Japan (1993).
