Fumihiko Maki – Bodies of Thought

Born in 1928, Fumihiko Maki was educated at the University of Tokyo and Harvard University. Since establishing Maki and Associates in 1965, he has completed many international projects including Hillside Terrace Apartments in Shibuya, Tokyo, the Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, the 4 World Trade Centre skyscraper in New York, amongst many others. Maki’s first UK project, the Aga Khan Foundation, opened in King’s Cross earlier this year.

The Japan Foundation is proud to be collaborating with RA for this special talk, which is the opening lecture for the RA’s “Bodies of Thought” series. Maki will explore the concept of a “humanism of empathy” in response to this context and discuss the work of his early mentors, Josep Lluis Sert Hon RA and Kenzo Tange.
