The Design Difference - Social Responsibility in Architecture


A public symposium, The Design Difference, was held at Japan Society on November 2, 2010.

How do architecture and design influence behavior? How does the built environment shape community?

How do architecture and design illuminate culture?

Valerie Casey, Founder and Executive Director, The Designers Accord, moderated a conversation with Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, Associate Professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Architect, and Co-founder, Atelier Bow-Wow, and John Peterson, Founder & President, Public Architecture, on the latest thinking in architecture and design from Japan and the United States.
