What you'll do

Let's get into the design details of 8-10 of my favorite examples of architecture by Japan's top architects. We'll see (new) buildings by almost every internationally recognized architect in Japan. It's such a rare case to have a high density of examples from the most heralded architects in one area. We'll also look at more examples of buildings to give you a sense of each architect's design. We'll go on top of rooftops, around corners, and through the small streets of Aoyama. We'll talk about design of the buildings, and their place in the city through the lens of a few themes. I'll show you connections between Japanese culture and urban design. I also make connections between my own worldview, transformed by Japan, and the city.

Mike

I have a Master's degree in Urban Design from Georgia Institute of Technology, and I studied Japanese cities and architecture through a framework of Ecological Urbanism. I consider Japanese architecture the best in the world right now. I love the city and nature—two major aspects of Japanese design.
