About this event

We're excited to welcome Chris Palmieri for Episode 5 and explore the design research practice of Kon Wajiro in the early Showa Era.

Kon Wajiro and Street Ethnography in modern Tokyo

In 1925, architect Kon Wajiro embarked on a self-initiated study of the rapid change occurring in the wake of the Great Kanto Earthquake, encompassing everything from cataloging the entire belongings of a Tokyo couple, to tracking the length of skirts and the prominence of kimonos.

Chris will introduce Kon’s studies of shelter and clothing in the post-earthquake period, with a focus on his hand-sketch capture of detail to generate questions and build typologies. He will then guide us through an exercise in visual observation and inquiry.

Observation is a core skill of design research, though one we might associate too tightly with activities structured and planned to serve a project. Through Kon’s work, we ask what becomes possible when we observe, not to solve, but to understand the change happening around us?
