Shadows and Light - Architecture, Abroad in Japan

PRESENTED ON MAY 28, 2015
IN TOKYO @ VOL 125

In referring to Japan's intrinsically and simultaneously traditional and futuristic duality, Woodbury University architecture students on a Japan study away trip ask, "are the shrines and neon places separate from each other?"

They draw attention to architectural examples they discovered in their time in various Japan cities that highlight the focus of their studies, shadows and light.  

 Come and find the correlations with them!
