Seminar: Conservation and Renovation of Architecture in Japan
Guest: UOYA Shigenori

November 18, 2015 from 18:00
@EFEO Kyoto

Lanuage: Japanese

During the 20th Century, Japan has experienced a quick and intense modernization and transformed under the impulse of new economic and cultural paradigms. For more than a century, the architecture built in Japan has evolved integrating new technologies, new forms, and new ideas. In the meanwhile, architecture, ways of living, techniques, forms and uses of traditional spaces have been partially preserved and renovated.
 After this high economical and urban growth, since the beginning of the 21st Century, Japanese society has probably entered into a new paradigm. The deindustrialization, the economical slow down, the population decline, environmental and ecological issues have modified the way to conceive architecture. We can notice that, during this time of "crisis," new possibilities of renovating the heritage of ancient and modern architecture have developed. Even the concepts of conservation and renovation are transforming and the practice of architecture and urbanism is evolving.
 In this monthly seminar, we give the word to theoreticians and practitioners who enquiry on the way of building new spaces from the heritage of the actual Japanese architecture and city.
