In this panel discussion, drawing to a close the RA’s Architecture Awards Week, discover how the architecture of Japan, from its innovative housing designs to its traditional building methods, has inspired generations of architects.

From the metabolists to the minimalist, Japan’s architects have consistently produced some of the most influential buildings.

Join us as we continue to celebrate the work of the inaugural Royal Academy Architecture Prize winner Itsuko Hasegawa with a discussion on the far-reaching influence of Japanese architecture.

Speakers include:

Itsuko Hasegawa - winner of the inaugural Royal Academy Architecture Prize (translated by Sakiko Kohashi)
Rebecca Salter RA - Keeper of the Royal Academy
Peter Salter - architect and Professor of Architectural Design at the University of Cardiff
Takeshi Hayatsu - founder, Hayatsu Architects
Yuki Sumner (chair) - architectural writer, journalist and consultant

In partnership with the Japan Foundation.
