Bubbles from Japan

The “Bubbles from Japan” lecture series aims to showcase the work of contemporary Japanese architects. Within the series prominent figures of the young generation of Japanese architects show their work, selected projects and tell about their creative practice. The program is implemented with the support of the Japanese Foundation, thanks to which some world-renowned architects visited Hungary for the first time. Among the invited guests of the program so far were Takaharu Tezuka, Norihito Nakatani, Sou Fujimoto, Takeshi Hosaka and Endo Shuhei.
