In the post-World W ar II period\, there was significant patronage of modern art and architect ure in this region. In 1958\, Kenzo Tange\, whose work combines modern arc hitecture with traditional Japanese techniques and symbolism\, designed Ka gawa Prefecture's governmental office building. This sparked an artistic r enaissance\, and the area has become an internationally acclaimed creative hub centered around the Setouchi Art Triennale. At this talk\,&nbsp\;<str ong>Prof. Toshiko Mori</strong>\, founder of Toshiko Mori Architect PLLC a nd Professor of Architecture at Harvard University\, examines this unique artistic and architectural phenomenon. She will also touch on her two proj ects in villages in Senegal that share a similar ambition to create peace and stability by integrating contemporary architecture with vernacular bui ldings and local culture.&nbsp\;\n<em>Followed by a reception.</em>&nbsp\; \n<a href="https://www.japansociety.org/event/toshiko-mori-transforming-co mmunities-through-architecture">https://www.japansociety.org/event/toshiko -mori-transforming-communities-through-architecture</a> SUMMARY:Toshiko Mori: Transforming Communities Through Architecture URL:/en/events/2019/05/01/toshiko-mori-transforming-communities-through-arc / END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
