Terunobu Fujimori and Richard Wentworth: The Urban Subconscious

  • Richard Wentworth and Terunobu Fujimori: The Urban Subconscious

Alongside his built work, architect Terunobu Fujimori has spent years documenting the traces of ephemeral patterns of behaviour in Tokyo, from tracks left by cyclists following a shortcut to the graffiti a branch makes on a wall. In conversation with the artist Richard Wentworth, Fujimori will discuss this work on the ‘urban subconscious,’ as well as his commission for the 1:1 – Architects Build Small Spaces exhibition and the ancient forms of vernacular architecture that have inspired him.

Chaired by Dr Sarah Teasley, History of Design and Critical & Historical Studies, Royal College of Art
