Architect Sou Fujimoto’s radical designs make us
re-think the way we relate to space.
Characterized by open layouts, experimentation,
and the blending of nature and design, his
buildings may feature tiny trees emerging from
the walls or staggered platforms in place of
floors and furniture. His first major overseas
commission, a summer pavilion for London’s
Serpentine Gallery in 2013, skyrocketed his
career, leading to a string of prestigious
projects around the world. He has also been an
active participant in Home-for-All, a project to
build vibrant community spaces for the people
affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami
disaster in Japan’s Sendai region. Join him at
Japan Society for a discussion on his novel
approach to architecture and the exciting
ventures ahead. Followed by a reception.
Just as New Yorkers have developed a deep
appreciation for Japanese cuisine, from hearty

Choice and founder of the Tribeca-based Korin
Japanese Trading Corp, talks with culinary
masters Michael Anthony, Chef and Partner at
Gramercy Tavern and Executive Chef and Managing
Director of Untitled and Studio Cafe at the
Whitney Museum, and Marcus Samuelsson, Chef and
Owner of Red Rooster and Streetbird, about how
Japanese ingredients, concepts and flavors have
shaped their cooking styles. Followed by a
reception and book-signing for Chef’s Choice.
