Vicky Richardson, Editor of leading architecture and design magazine Blueprint will give an illustrative presentation explaining why the magazine has created a Japan issue in each of the past five years, and the reasons why she thinks Japanese design and architecture is worthy of this attention. There will also be a discussion with Souhei Imamura, Tokyo-based architect and writer, looking at some of the new innovations emerging from Japan.
Blueprint is the leading magazine for architecture and design. This event coincides with the publication of its annual special issue about Japanese architecture and design. Throughout January Blueprint will publish a series of articles exploring the work of contemporary Japanese designers on its website in addition to those in the print version. This event is organised in association with Blueprint magazine and kindly supported by Toto.
