A rare opportunity to gain insight into the creative mind of internationally acclaimed Japanese architect Ishigami Junya in a special talk at Japan House.

Known for highly experimental works which draw on the worlds of nature and fantasy, but are firmly rooted in rigorous architectural research, Ishigami is one of the creators whose work is featured in the exhibition SUBTLE: Delicate or Infinitesimal.

In this talk Ishigami discusses his creative process and visions for contemporary architecture with reference to a number of his studio’s main architectural projects.

Bringing his singular architectural approach to the world of paper, Ishigami's piece ‘SPRING’ can be seen in the Gallery at Japan House from 13 November – 24 December 2018.
