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 program at the Open University of Japan. This research project is aiming at showing how politics have dictated conditions for buildings where political meeting take place. Simultaneously, the architecture of the buildings has influenced political affairs.
Assistant Professor Shin Sato is a co-researcher of the research project and has been working with Prof. Mikuriya for many years. We are happy to invite him to Stockholm with support from the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters (Vitterhetsakademien). Prof Sato will give a lecture with much visual material on Monday 4th and will hold a workshop to show participants the working methods of their research on Tuesday 5th. Both events will be held in English.
