Modern Japanese Architecture

Dec 2004

This person simply doesn't know how to teach. Most of the classes were reduced to mediocre student presentations to compensate for the instructor's lack of competence in both her expertise in the field and her English language ability. When she did lecture a bit, she would resort to cliched notions of Zen, tea ceremony, and the misty pagodas that represented Japanese architecture to the orientalists of the prewar period. I think we're way beyond that circa 2003.
