(Nov. 15, 2010)--Known for amazing designs and architectural innovation, Hitoshi Abe is the second lecturer in UTSA College of Architecture fall lecture series. The professor and chair of the UCLA Department of Architecture and Urban Design, will speak on "Four Principles of Form," at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 17, in the Buena Vista Theater (1.326) at the UTSA Downtown Campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Abe is a world-renowned architect most noted for designing the famous Miyagi Stadium in Sendai, Japan, and the Reihoku Community Hall in Kumamoto, Japan. He earned his M.Arch. degree from Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles in 1988 and his Ph.D. from Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan, in 1993.

Included among his many international awards are the 2008 SIA-Getz Prize for Emergent Architecture in Asia and the 2009 Architectural Institute of Japan award for the SSM/Kanno Museum in Shiogama City, Miyagi, Japan.

"Hitoshi Abe is one of the world's most prolific architects," said John Murphy, dean of the UTSA College of Architecture. "To have someone of his caliber speak to our students and this community is a major event and one that will certainly broaden our scope of what urban design can include."
