Japan Architect Hiroyuki Unemori - On architecture in the age of diversity

12/08/2022 1:00 PM- 2:00 PM (AEST)



UNEMORI ARCHITECTS aims to create an architecture that enables us to recognize diversity and feel for others. 

Others here refer to diverse beings such as human beings and natural environments, for example, we have designed "House in Takaoka" a stilts house generating from the response to ventilation and humidity, "BASE" a shared office that boldly renovated the middle floor into an outdoor terrace, “Kitakami health & childcare support complex” that various people can use freely like parks etc.

We will give a lecture on architecture in the age of sustainability to come that stays close to nature and living with others in Japan heading toward a mature society with an aging and declining population.
