Dana Buntrock

Professor, Dept of Architecture & Chair, Center for Japanese Studies University of California, Berkeley

Dana Buntrock is Chair of the University of California’s Center for Japanese Studies and a Professor in the university’s Department of Architecture.

Her work focuses on interdisciplinary collaborations in Japanese architecture and construction practices, starting with her first book, Japanese Architecture as a Collaborative Process: Opportunities in a Flexible Construction Culture (London: Spon, 2000). It dealt with the radical changes that occurred in structural design and their exciting architectural outcomes following the 1995 Hanshin (Kobe) earthquake. She has conducted fieldwork in Japan, the US, Taiwan, and Korea, supported by fellowships from the US National Science Foundation, the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, the Council for the International Exchange of Scholars, and the Social Science Research Council.

Among her professional activities, she has been a visiting scholar at the University of Tokyo and at Tokyo Institute of Technology, and was the Frederick Lindley Morgan Chair of Architectural Design at the University of Louisville.

Since 2011, Prof. Buntrock has focused on how energy supply and architecture create opportunities for new approaches to architecture in Japan. She has spoken on energy policy and building science to numerous universities and private organizations, including the US National Defense University, the University of Tokyo, the Architectural Institute of Japan, Tokyo Denki University and others. Over the years, she has also made presentations at the Japan Society (New York), the Foreign Correspondents’ Club (Tokyo), Architects Designers and Planners for Social Responsibility, the Chicago Architectural Club, Seoul National University, National Cheng Kung University and numerous other universities and international conferences.

The author of three books and dozens of articles in professional and academic journals, Buntrock’s work has been translated into Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Spanish. She is currently working on a book provisionally titled Untapped Social and Economic Opportunities in Japanese Architecture.
