Architecture and Media

Japanese Architecture & Urbanism

Reinforcing the need to consider the production and consumption as well as the transmission and reception of architecture.


This research is concerned with the historic mediation of architecture and the construction of architecture publics through multiple media and venues targeted to disciplinary and interdisciplinary audiences. Studies examine how architecture is disseminated and represented through photography, exhibitions, publications, tours and films. Current work explores roles for photography within the discursive construction of architecture.
