Limited seats still available for Kulapat Yantrasast lecture

Supplier News

A limited number of seats are still available to hear acclaimed LA-based architect Kulapat Yantrasast on his Australian lecture tour this month.

A protégé of the Japanese master, Tadao Ando, Yantrasast is delivering the annual C+A TALKS lecture on the following days:

  • Sydney – 16th May
  • Brisbane – 17th May
  • Melbourne – 18th May
  • Perth – 19th May
Yantrasast is probably best known internationally for his Grand Rapids Art Museum in the United States; however, he is also renowned in the US for his housing designs that are characterised by simple yet elegant geometrical lines and a seamless interaction with the surrounding environment. Examples of his work include Hollywood House, a design that borrows from the idea of a continual strip of film.

Yantrasast’s architectural journey began when he left his native Thailand to study in Japan, and after hearing Tadao Ando lecture, he followed the Pritzker Prize winner to Osaka and worked alongside him for seven years.

He headed to Los Angeles in 2003 to establish wHY Architecture, described by Newsweek magazine as one of the most innovative architectural practices of the new generation.

Yantrasast, who is in much demand around the globe as a lecturer, is being brought to Australia by industry association, Cement Concrete and Aggregates Australia (CCAA).

Tickets for his Australian lectures can be purchased from the CCAA website.

Attendance at the C+A TALK will earn two points under the Australian Institute of Architects CPD program.
