On Wednesday May 1st, Toshiko Mori (AR’76) will be presenting a talk titled “Transforming Communities Through Architecture” that examines the artistic and cultural renaissance of the Setouchi region of Japan in the post WWII reconstruction era. Starting with the revolutionary work of architect Kenzo Tange as a point of departure, this talk, moderated by Dean Nader Tehrani, will also include Mori’s own projects in Senegalese villages that share similar impulses to create peace and stability through synthesizing local culture and vernacular architecture.
