We’re back with Museum in Motion after a brief hiatus. Our fifth instalment features Justin McDaniel, who teaches Buddhism and Southeast Asian Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Drawing from his book Architects of Buddhist Leisure, Justin McDaniel examines the way in which Kenzo Tange went about creating Lumbini’s pilgrimage park, and how his masterplan has had to adapt to local conditions and changes. He also discusses the way in which Lumbini and other Buddhist leisure parks have contributed to a growing Buddhist ecumenism at a global level.
