Lunchtime Talk at Mitsui Fudosan
Principles of Freedom
Not unlike the life it is creating space for, architecture is best when embracing diversity.
Yet instead of going into the excessive mode of anything-goes eclecticism, following simple, rigorous rules can generate a wealth of diversity not of surface but of and for content.
Architecture is not about singular objects, but about relations in space —
principles that are deeply ingrained in the culture, and even the language, of Japan.
Oscillating between language, culture, and architectural projects, this talk revolves around the principles for diversity in architecture.
