Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) hosts a conversation among five of the most influential contemporary Japanese architects: Toyo Ito, Kazuyo Sejima, Sou Fujimoto, Akihisa Hirata and Junya Ishigami. Moderated by Columbia GSAPP professors Jeffrey Inaba and Kenneth Frampton, the conversation aims to explore the relationships and creative exchanges among this prominent group of architects and designers.

The event is presented in collaboration with the Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, on occasion of the exhibition “A Japanese Constellation”. The exhibition organized by Pedro Gadanho and highlights the global impact and innovation of contemporary architecture from Japan since the 1990s by providing an overview of Toyo Ito’s career and his influence among a new generation of Japanese architects.

Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP):

Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP) offers a series of distinctive programs. The educational objectives of these programs deal in different ways with one open-ended field: urban society and its future. The presence of several areas of study within a single school enables a critical understanding of the forces that affect the building of spaces and the making of cities, so as to encourage appropriate formulation of original concepts, designs, and policies. In each degree program offered, the School aims to develop students’ artistic and intellectual abilities and to provide them, as future professionals, with the information and strategies necessary to deal responsibly and inventively with the issues challenging urban society today. These issues are approached in a non-doctrinaire way so as to yield both significant theoretical proposals as well as pertinent solutions that can be effectively implemented in the contemporary city.
