    will galloway Jun 7 '12 3

    I really love it when professional threads come together, even if it's momentary.

    Our colleague at Keio, the architect Fumihiko Maki, is donating a sketch to Architecture for Humanity and their fundraising drive focusing on loving architecture (for a change, and about time too!)

    Works up for auction include drawings by a great group, from Bjarke Ingels to Renzo Piano, Steven Holl and more.

    Check out the ebay site and bid for some of the good stuff!

      Hi Will,

      This is John Tubles, Orhan's former student. We met in Keio a couple of years ago.

      I am going to be back in Japan for the entire month of July. I am planning to visit the Tohoku region and volunteer for about a week... i am currently in contact with a former professor's friend that is involved with the Disaster Relief... I am just curious if  do you know any other organization that I can contact for volunteer opportunities.. just in case my first plan falls apart (which I have a feeling it might).

      Thank you.

About this Blog

keio university's architecture program is probably the best kept secret in the country. Hidden away on a campus an hour from tokyo the curriculum is wide open and connected to a campus-wide project aimed at dealing with climate change and innovation. students of economics can take courses in architecture and vice versa but we all are expected to take part in real projects somewhere in the world. there are a few starchitects on the faculty but mostly we are focused on making a difference.
