Event description

Description

Ken Tadashi Oshima is Professor in the Department of Architecture at the University of Washington, where he teaches in the areas of trans-national architectural history, theory, representation, and design. He is also a hands-on designer, teaching architectural studio classes and practicing professionally, with several notable architecture and landscape architecture projects in Japan.

Originally trained at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, UC Berkeley and Columbia University, he serves as a visiting professor at these esteemed institutions. In his work, Oshima has written extensively about important Japanese practitioners like Arata Isozaki, Kiyonori Kikutake, and SANAA, and as an editor for Architecture + Urbanism was responsible for co-authoring the two-volume special issue, Visions of the Real: Modern Houses in the 20th Century (2000).


In his Adelaide lecture, Oshima will continue on themes introduced in his 2013 publication Architecturalized Asia: Mapping a Continent through History, looking at ideas like “Asia-outside-of-Asia” to consider the context of transnational practice of architecture. He will further address the Adelaide Congress theme of "Architecture as Method" to consider the methodological implications of the discipline of architecture.
