Fall 2021 Public Lecture Series

Lecture Abstract

Architecture is close to us and has a lot to do with us unconsciously. It is a place where we live our ordinary lives and it works as a medium in providing opportunities to foster the relationship between the city and people as well as create various activities for people to communicate with each other.

Architecture generates new experiences and inspirations. This lecture will examine architecture as an impetus through the works of Yuko Nagayama.


Born in 1975, Yuko Nagayama graduated from Showa Women’s University. After working at Jun Aoki & Associates, she established Yuko Nagayama & Associates in 2002. She received numerous awards and prizes, including JIA Young Architect Award (2014) with “Teshima Yokoo House”, Yamanashi Cultural Prize of Architecture (2017), JCD Design Award, Silver Award (2017), Tokyo Architecture Award, Excellent Prize (2018) with “Goddess of The Forest Central Garden”, Design Award for Light and Lighting and Grand Prize (2021) with “Tamagawa Takashimaya S.C. Grand Patio”. Her other representative works include “Louis Vuitton Kyoto Daimaru” and “a hill on a house” in Tokyo.
