Nostalgic Future - Takaharu Tezuka - Public Lecture


Nostalgic Future
Takaharu Tezuka

Free Public Lecture

Tuesday 20 August // 6pm
DL Lecture Theatre // CPIT

The Christchurch Centre for Architecture is pleased to present a free public lecture by Takaharu Tezuka. Tokyo-based Tezuka Architects have a growing international reputation for their inventive and often charming approach to design. Rather than the attenuated materiality or structural gymnastics that characterize much contemporary Japanese architecture, they have become known for refreshingly unconventional buildings that create flexible, open living spaces on the constrained sites that typify Japanese cities. Their suburban houses and apartment buildings combine new sensibilities and traditional values – in the Roof House (2001), each room in the house is expanded through access to a series of casual living areas on the roof. In recent years, award-winning public projects such as Fuji Kindergarten (2007) and Woods of Net (2009) have demonstrated the Tezuka’s ability to exercise their originality at a larger scale. 

The Tezukas are in New Zealand as  International Architects-in-Residence for 2013 at the University of Auckland School of Architecture and Planning. Their residency is supported by the Warren Trust, GIB and the New Zealand Institute of Architects. Their Christchurch lecture has received additional support from the Canterbury Branch of the NZIA with venue support from CPIT.
