    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!   


    • A Frank Ching, and a Paolo Soleri?  Goodness.  That's beautiful 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 community-driven 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 hoping to make a difference.
