Kinoshita Lecture in Architecture: Fumihiko Maki
Until the 1970s, architects all coexisted in a large boat named “Modernism”. But, as Modernism expanded and dispersed, that boat has disappeared, with its style, theory and manifestos thrown into the open sea. Fortunately, there are still some swells that guide us in unknown directions, which Fumihiko Maki calls “A Humanism of Empathy”. In this lecture, Maki will illustrate his vision for humane architecture with recent projects, including 4 World Trade Center in New York, the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto, and Shenzhen Sea World Culture and Arts Center.
