Architects, not Architecture | VWT Japan Edition with Toyo Ito

by Robbie
After an amazing response to the first Virtual World Tour, during the peak of the pandemic in late 2020 early 2021, “AnA” has decided to continue the global digital approach to connect the architectural community on a personal level.

From October 13th until December 8th, 2021 AnA will be hosting five events for the first half of our new Virtual World Tour. This year they will visit Hong Kong, Brazil, Japan, The United States and Turkey, where they have invited two architects respectively to tell us about their biographies, anecdotes and events that have shaped their architectural positions and personalities.

The highlight event is this Japan Edition where we will have Pritzker-Prize laureate and world-renowned architect Toyo Ito as a speaker.

The guests are invited to present their stories for 20 minutes followed by a 10 minute conversation with founder and host of Architects, not Architecture, Fermín Tribaldos. A roundtable discussion with both speakers and the host, as well as questions from the audience will close the event. All talks are accessible free of cost with a live-stream link provided to your e-
