How Can Japanese And US Designers Cooperate In A Peace Memorial?

Seisuke Watanabe

Professor, Nagaoka Institute of Design

Aloha kakou—

Please join me in welcoming our esteemed colleague Professor Seisuke Watanabe to our podium on Monday, September 12, 2016. Professor Watanabe’s lecture is entitled, “How can Japanese and U.S. designers cooperate in a peace memorial?”

Professor Watanabe has been an instrumental partner in the creation of our school’s exchange agreement with the Nagaoka Institute of Design, in Nagaoka, Japan. This agreement commemorates the 70th anniversary of peace between the Unites States and Japan.

Nagaoka and Honolulu are sister cities. Nagaoka is the birthplace of Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, who led the December 7, 1941, surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, killing 2,403 Americans. On August 1, 1945, United States forces firebombed Nagaoka, destroying over 80 percent of the city and killing 1,470 Japanese. A few days later—on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively—the U.S. dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the only wartime use of nuclear weapons in history.

Last April, Professor Judith Stilgenbauer presented a lecture before a standing-room only audience in Nagaoka, the first lecture in our newly-established program of academic exchange. Next spring, undergraduate students from UH-M and NID will jointly participate in a studio exploring the design of peace memorials that commemorate the unique relationship between Nagaoka and Honolulu. Professor Watanabe joins us to open the questions that drive this collaboration.

We hope to see you Monday, 6 p.m., in the auditorium, reception to follow.

Highest regards and mahalo,
Daniel
