Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

Dana Buntrock is Chair of the University of California’s Center for Japanese Studies and a Professor in the University of California, Berkeley's Department of Architecture. She is the first Tomoye Takahashi Chair of Japanese Studies. Her work focuses on interdisciplinary collaborations in Japanese architecture and construction practices.

Her lecture, titled, "What Could Go Wrong?" asks, "What’s architecture?" Who we are and what we do gets reinvented in response to economic or legal change. In the 1960s and 1970s, architects were America’s idealists. In the 1990s we became architects. What got left behind the last time, and where can our profession take leadership as society again undergoes dramatic change?
