Itsuko Hasegawa: Ordinary and Heroic

06 March 2013

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Venue:

Architectural Association, 36 Bedford Square London

Description:

Venice Takeaway
International Exchange #3

Itsuko Hasegawa is an architect with a reputation for kicking against the grain of architectural fashion.

At a time when building design is under ever greater public scrutiny - often reducing the architect's role to facilitator of someone else's ideas or even administrator - she has championed bold leadership.

Her style has frequently challenged and in some cases proved to be unpopular. However, she remains able to build lasting and genuine connections with the communities in which she works. 

In this lecture, Hasegawa reveals her approach to architecture and explores the complexed relationship between architects and clients, the public and planners. She asks: How can architects retain control, while exercising great design leadership?
