UTSA East Asia Institute hosts lecture by Associate Dean Taeg Nishimoto
(April 12, 2010)--The UTSA East Asia Institute will host a lecture by Taeg Nishimoto, UTSA associate dean and professor of architecture, at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 13 in Humanities and Social Sciences Building Room 2.01.06 on the UTSA Main Campus.
Nishimoto will speak on "Japanese Sensitivity of Space," including a discussion on the Japanese spatial elements and their interrelationship with historical and contemporary contexts. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Throughout its history, Japan has developed a unique social, cultural and aesthetic sense of space. While this uniqueness is not identifiable as a singular characteristic, there are observable aspects and elements that constitute Japanese awareness in cities, architecture, gardens, painting and literature.
Nishimoto joined UTSA in 2007 and has received distinguished architecture awards and honors including the New York AIA Design Award and the Gregory Millard Fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts.
His career includes experience in the private and academic sectors including time with Columbia University, Temple University and numerous universities in Texas, and architectural firms in Amsterdam, Tokyo and New York City. He is a licensed architect in New York and Japan.
