The CCA collection is a repository of ideas, provocations, inspirations, trials, and errors. It is also an important source for scholarship and a reflection on architecture and society. Join us in Tokyo for a seminar on research projects advanced by archival work within our collection.
Mirko Zardini, Giovanna Borasi, and Kayoko Ota will present the CCA and its extensive collection and research programs. Scholars, architects, and curators based in Japan who have taken residency at the CCA in recent years will share their research interests and the discoveries they made in the CCA collection.
The presentations will be followed by a discussion on how archival materials can contribute to the generation of new ideas for contemporary debates in architecture.
