Japanese architect and urban designer Kenzo Tange, D.Art Harvard 1971 hon., was educated at the University of Tokyo where he also served as a professor from 1946 to 1974. Tange received numerous prizes and honorary degrees from universities in the United States, Europe and the Far East. His built work spans the globe – in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and the United States. In 1980 it was noted that “Kenzo Tange’s work reflects and crystallizes the changing political and economic climate of Japan in a quarter century, from the nationalism of World War II, through the defeat and reconstruction, to the renewed search for national identity and growth in confidence.”
