Kenzo Tange (1913 - 2005) is one of the central figures of post-war architecture. For decades, his designs, from urban planning to constructive principles, had a significant influence on the development of Japanese modernism and the theory and practice of international architecture. The joint seminar week of the Professorship of Structural Design and the Professorship of Architectural Theory will visit Kenzo Tange′s most important buildings in Japan and examine the influence of his work on technological and social developments and the negotiation of spatial and structural concepts. In a dialogue between civil engineer and architect, the seminar week will explore the diversity of the resulting architectural systems and the exploration of concrete construction which is common to all designs. The context to the work of Kenzo Tange is provided by the visit of buildings by Junzo Sakakura, Yoshinobu Ashihara, Kunio Maekawa, Kiyonori Kikutake and Kisho Kurokawa.
