Please join Curator and PennDesign Lecturer Ariel Genadt on Thursday, September 13 at 5pm for a gallery talk on the exhibition "Critical Abstractions: Modern Architecture in Japan, 1868 - 2018" in the Architectural Archives.

On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Meiji Restoration that spawned a radical transformation of Japan’s architecture, this exhibition aims to contribute to expanding the traditional Western-oriented history of modern architecture to include Japan on par with other countries where abstraction became manifest in building. Please see the exhibition page for more information.
