Learning from the Japanese City: Cultural Predispositions in Design
We all carry cultural predispositions acquired through the practice and observation of everyday things - as in Pierre Bordieu's concept of habitus. The actions (as in design) and results (patterns and forms) are so familiar that we do not pause to think - they become 'second nature'.  The seminar will explore spatial predispositions in Japanese culture across several scales from the humble QR code to the structure and appearance of cities with some attention to the Japanese writing system. This is a theme commenced in my book, Learning from the Japanese City.
