This asynchronous NCTA short course guides participants on an exploration of traditional Japanese art and architecture through the lens of the aesthetic principles known as wabi and sabi. Four modules will explicate the historical origins of wabi and sabi in medieval poetics and the tenets of Zen Buddhism, consider specific examples of these principles as applied to the design of material objects and architectural spaces, and analyze how their definition and influence has evolved over time both within Japan and globally.
