Kyoto, June 13, 2014: Kyoto University of Art and Design (KUAD)
The English edition of “URYU” features translated articles of “URYU TSUSHIN,” the Japanese edition issued three times a year. This university magazine functions as active learning opportunities for university students who learn editorial skills, photography and editorial design under the guidance by its professor Keiichi Kadosaki, a renowned editor in Japan, and Mr. Yusuke Mimasu, a highly regarded young designer.
The first English edition is the translation of two feature articles of “URYU TSUSHIN” Vol. 61 issued on April 3, 2014.
The first article focuses on Professor Shigeru Ban, who will receive the 2014 Pritzker Architecture Prize, “the Nobel Prize of Architecture,” at the ceremony scheduled on June 13, 2014, at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. It reveals Ban’s three faces: a world renowned architect, a supporter of disaster-stricken areas, and an educator in the university.
The other article focuses on Mr. Shimpei Mito, a graduate photographer who recently draws wide attention for his street style shots of models off the runway at Fashion Weeks around the world.
The editorial team is now working on the Japanese edition Vol. 62 featuring Professor Miwa Yanagi, one of Japan’s leading contemporary artists, who is scheduled to work on many art projects including the Yokohama Triennale from August 1, 2014, PARASOPHIA - Kyoto International Festival of Contemporary Culture from March 7, 2015, Performing Arts Projects in the U.S. and in Japan, among others.
