From its origins in India in the 6th century BC, Buddhism spread across Asia, commingling with local traditions. Taking an interdisciplinary approach that brings together history, philosophy, and art, this lecture explores the diversity of architecture in the Buddhist world, with particular emphasis on Southeast Asia. The speaker will also discuss the nature of an architect’s engagement with history and theory. He will share his experience pursuing a reflective architectural practice – one that incorporates a holistic understanding of the built environment.
