Architecture Lecture Series: Yo Shimada

Yo Shimada founded Tato Architects in 1997 upon graduating from Kyoto City University of Art, where he completed a number of designs and built architecture projects at the school.
The name Tato is derived from the decomposition of the kanji character “outside,” which can be read in multiple ways. Tato Architects is interested in the process of continuous exploration in order to achieve a kind of ambiguity in its architecture, an architecture that renews itself through the perspective of people’s everyday experiences. Furthermore, the practice aims to create an architecture that quietly alters consciousness.
Lecture made possible by the Jean Labatut Memorial Lectures in Architecture and Urban Planning Fund. The School of Architecture, Princeton University, is registered with the AIA Continuing Education System (AIA/CES) and is committed to developing quality learning activities in accordance with the AIA/CES criteria.
