Lecture Series: Hiroto Kobayashi
This lecture looks to the potential of technology and of socially driven design. Alongside his work in practice, Hiroto Kobayashi studies the social contribution of architecture and urban design, and he has spent the last several years working on rural revitalization and disaster response. Most recently his work focuses on the development of a self-build construction system using plywood that makes use of modern construction technology that needs no technical skills to assemble. This work - the Veneer House - is used in disaster relief and children’s education, and has been applied around the world, beginning with its first use after the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011.
Undergraduate Students Present Research Papers at ICERI Seville
In November, the 15th International Conference of Edcucation, Research and Innovation took place in Seville, Spain. As international borders opened again, six undergraduate students from the Department of Architectural Science were able to visit Seville not only as delegates, but also as presenters. For many of these students, this was their first international conference–and their first speaking opportunity. The six undergraduate students, which included Ariel Weiss, Jake Levy, Jake Kroft, Luke De Bartolo, Sadberk Agma, and Daniela Diaz, represented the department with research papers highlighting studio pedagogy, virtual reality (VR), digital tools, and design-build projects here at DAS.
