Julian Worrall is an Australian architect, scholar, and critic, with an international reputation as an interpeter of the architecture and urbanism of contemporary Japan.

After an early practice career in Sydney leading to architectural registration in NSW, Julian won a Japanese MEXT scholarship in 2000 to pursue research on Japanese urbanism at the University of Tokyo. After completing his PhD in 2005, he returned to practice, working as an architect and urbanist with Klein Dytham in Tokyo and Rem Koolhaas's OMA in Rotterdam, before returning to Tokyo in 2008 to accept an academic post at Waseda University. He took up his present position at the University of Adelaide in 2014.

His work, pursued through a mix of scholarly research, critical writing, and design practice, is broadly concerned with the construction of alternative modernities, particularly as seen through the lens of the East Asian metropolis. While unequivocally rooted in the intellectual soil of the university, his activities have striven to connect the often segregated realms of teaching, research, and practice.

A prominent architecture writer, Julian is a contributing editor for the influential design journal Icon (UK) and former architectural columnist for Japan's leading English-language newspaper The Japan Times, with translations of his writing appearing in seven languages. He has been invited to speak or contribute to major institutions of architectural culture and education globally, including V&A Museum London; MAK Museum of Applied Art Vienna; Strelka Institute Moscow; Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation Sydney; Venice Architecture Biennale; Chicago Architecture Biennial, and MoMA New York. Recent contributions to major exhibitions include "A Japanese Constellation" (New York, MoMA, 2016) and "Eastern Promises: Contemporary Architecture and Spatial Practice in East Asia" (Vienna, Hatje Cantz, 2013).

    Publication date: 2017
    Extent: Site area 95.13 metre square
    ERA Research Statement - 2000 character limit: Research Contribution: The project uses formal, spatial, material, and programmatic strategies to embed the architecture of the house within its setting, while simultaneously distinguishing itself from it. Formal Strategy: a neutral, generic 5.8m cubic frame oriented to the sun and ocean view is wrapped by an irregular envelope responding to the site boundary. The gap between the universal frame and the locally responsive envelope provides space for servicing and supporting functions: kitchen and bathroom, storage, and outside terraces. Conceptually, this interstitial gap between universal "space" and local "place" engages an ongoing research concern relating to "displacement". Spatial Strategy: Principles of Japanese traditional architecture are employed in the spatial organisation of the building. The traditional earth-floored space ("doma") and elevated verandah ("engawa") is reflected in the ground level plan. Intersecting timber columns and beams in the upper level reflect the constructional patterns found in traditional rural residences built in timber. Material Strategy: Exterior cladding of charred cedar ("shou sugi ban") a traditional technique practised in central Japan for protecting wooden houses by the ocean. Uncommon in the Kanto region, the dark outline of the building introduces a strong figural element within the townscape, reflecting the local landscape of eroded sandstone bluffs. Programmatic Strategy: recessive private cellular spaces (bedrooms) are placed at ground level and entered from the rear, with apertures to the side for independent access and views; while the large public space of the living/dining area and upper level mezzanine are oriented to the ocean via a large transparent south-facing operable aperture and terrace. The openness and visibility of this space aims to insinuate productive effects within the broader community, inviting a different relationship to the surrounding natural landscape and social context.
    Description: Timber and steel-framed house overlooking the Pacific Ocean clad in charred cedar ("shou sugi ban"). Location: Ubara village, Katsura City, Chiba Prefecture Japan. Site area: 95.13m2; Building Footprint: 55.60m2; Gross Floor Area: 98.32m2

    Place of publication: Christchurch, New Zealand
    Publication date: 22 October 2016
    Extent: Installation mounted around three inverted tetrahedral structures 3.5m on a side.
    ERA Research Statement - 2000 character limit: This project was an installation in the 2016 iteration of the Festival of Transitional Architecture (FESTA) held in October 2016 Christchurch, New Zealand. It was a project generated by twelve M.Arch students from the University of Adelaide, under the direction of A/Prof. Julian Worrall.

    Conceived and created to respond to an overarching theme entitled "Lean Means", focussed on the reuse of waste materials, the project consisted of hundreds of inflated plastic bags that formed a "cloud" around the supporting structure. This cloud was illuminated by self-powered LEDs, and adorned with lasercut reused acrylic pieces formed into water droplet shapes, on which awareness-raising facts about plastic waste were etched. The quantities of materials used was based on the typical usage of plastic bags by an average Christchurch household in one year.

    The project succeeded in dramatising and drawing attention to the utilisation of waste materials, through the creation of a visually engaging and socially interactive architectonic installation. It received substantial media attention, appearing on New Zealand national television news, as well as in local newspaper and professional publications.

    Abstract: A survey of architect-led initiatives towards community-building and reconstruction in the Tohoku region of Japan in the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake of 11 March 2011. Includes discussion of the Home-for-All project; the Archi-Aid network; the Core House project; and the Asahi Kindergarten, implemented in the communities of Rikuzentakata, Minamisanriku, Kamaishi, Higashimatsushima and others. These initiatives point to a renewed concern for community and social agendas among design-oriented architects in Japan.

    Abstract: A review of the "Gate Villa" in Ibaraki prefecture, Japan, designed by Makoto Takei and Chiba Nabeshima (TNA). The focus of the discussion is on the role of its white suspended structural and spatial grid. A comparison is made with "Agricultural City," a little known experimental project from 1960 by the Japanese metabolist architect Kisho Kurokawa, which employs a similar device on a larger scale. The paper argues that in TNA's hands, the elevated grid is employed "not as a reference to a universal rational order, but to strengthen the building's links to its context and local history."

    Abstract: Following in the footsteps of Donald Richie, the doyen of living foreign writers on Japan and author of the celebrated "The Inland Sea" (1971), this article is a writerly exploration of a trio of islands in Japan's Inland Sea - Naoshima, Inujima, and Teshima. The discussion pursues an analysis of the "Naoshima Method", an approach to the challenges of economic and demographic decline confronting these communities that employs contemporary art and architecture as a vehicle for injecting cultural tourism and urban wealth, thereby reinvigorating them. The piece teases out the distinctions between the respective interventions on each island, yielding an inventory of themes, strategies, and experiences, encompassing art, architecture, landscape, community, and nature, presenting a compelling story of social revitalisation through cultural means.
    The article is accompanied by the photography of Iwan Baan, bringing visual and experiential depth to the writing.
