Forum for Architecture of Universities: Archive and Outreach

The architecture that embellishes cities contains the memory of human activities inside and outside the buildings.
This forum focuses on the architecture in universities, which stand very close to the local community but offer few opportunities for people to experience them.
Through lectures and case studies, the program will share and discuss projects in several universities to highlight their architecture and the activities of architectural archives in Japan and abroad.

Language: Japanese with language support in English
* The lecture will be held in Japanese. However, we will provide English language support for non-Japanese speakers. Further details will be announced later on this website.
