MSD at HOME with Thomas Daniell

Online - ABP Zoom Webinar


Notes from a Small Island

Thomas Daniell will introduce his most recent book An Anatomy of Influence (an elucidation of the theory and practice of 12 postwar Japanese architects), and use it as a basis for discussing current and future directions in contemporary Japanese architecture. Unavoidably, this will also be a discussion of the challenges, risks, and pleasures of being a critic and historian working within another culture.

Thomas Daniell is Professor of Architectural Theory and Criticism at Kyoto University, Japan. He holds a B.Arch from Victoria University of Wellington, M.Eng from Kyoto University, and Ph.D from RMIT University. From 2011 until 2017, he was Head of the Department of Architecture at the University of Saint Joseph, Macau. In 2017 he was the M+/Design Trust Research Fellow, and in 2019 he was a Research Fellow at the Canadian Center for Architecture. A two-time recipient of publication grants from the Graham Foundation, his books include FOBA: Buildings (Princeton Architectural Press, 2005), After the Crash: Architecture in Post-Bubble Japan (Princeton Architectural Press, 2008), Houses and Gardens of Kyoto (Tuttle, 2010; second edition 2018), Kiyoshi Sey Takeyama + Amorphe (Equal Books, 2011), Kansai 6 (Equal Books, 2011), and An Anatomy of Influence (AA Publications, 2018).
