Free architecture lecture by Toyo Ito
    2017-September-7  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Japanese architect Toyo Ito will deliver a public lecture titled “Generative Architecture From Asia of the 21st Century” at Shenzhen University next Tuesday.

Entry is free and seats will be given on a first-come-first-served basis.

Ito graduated from the University of Tokyo’s department of architecture in 1965. He is known for his work in conceptual architecture in which he simultaneously expresses the physical and virtual worlds through his designs. He is a leading proponent of the notion of a “simulated” city in contemporary architecture and has been called “one of the world’s most innovative and influential architects.”

In 2013, Ito was awarded the Pritzker Prize, one of architecture’s most prestigious acknowledgements. He was a likely front-runner for the Pritzker Prize for the previous decade before finally receiving it. The prize tends to be given to less experienced architects, for example Chinese architect Wang Shu in 2012, but in this case, awarding it to Ito was an act of recognition of a lifetime’s-worth of achievements in architecture.

Ito’s philosophy towards architecture defines it as “clothing” for urban dwellers, particularly in the contemporary Japanese metropolis. Central to this theme is the pursuit of equilibrium between the private and the public lives of individuals. His current projects expand on the work he produced during the postmodern period, aggressively exploring the potential of new forms. In doing so, he seeks to find new spatial conditions that manifest the philosophy of borderless beings.

Time: 7 p.m., Sept. 12

Venue: Performing and Conference Center, Shenzhen University, Nanshan District (南山区深圳大学演会中心)

Metro: Line 1, Shenzhen University Station (深大站), Exit C
