The interrelationship between politics and architecture in Japan
How has politics dictated conditions for buildings where political meetings take place? And simultaneously, how has the architecture of the buildings influenced political affairs? With the help of Vitterhetsakademien, we have been able to invite Assistant Professor Shin Sato, a co-researcher to Professor Mikuriya, who has conducted research on the interrelation between politics and architecture for many years. Mr. Sato will give an open lecture with plenty of visual material. On Tuesday he will give a workshop on their working method.
Time: Mon 2017-09-04 17.30 - 19.00
Lecturer: Assistant Professor Shin Sato

Research on the interrelation between politics and architecture has been conducted intensively by Prof Takashi Mikuriya, University of Tokyo, and has been a part of programs at the Open University of Japan. This research project is aimed at showing how politics has dictated conditions for buildings where political meetings take place. Simultaneously, the architecture of the buildings has influenced political affairs.
