I believe that the way people live can be directed a little by architecture.
At the same time, I would add that the American people have a lot of courage.
My hand is the extension of the thinking process – the creative process.
In Japan, there is less a culture of preserving old buildings than in Europe.
In the West there has always been the attempt to try make the religious building, whether it’s a Medieval or Renaissance church, an eternal object for the celebration of God. The material chosen, such as stone, brick, or concrete, is meant to eternally preserve what is inside.
I don’t look so closely at women’s fashion, but from the 20th century on, people have had the freedom to express themselves and their individualities, and fashion is one of the most fundamental ways in which they do this, men and women are equally able to express themselves.
The speed of change makes you wonder what will become of architecture.
When I draw something, the brain and the hands work together.
I want each of you to go through life making the most of your individuality. Like it or not, you will go out into the real world and be treated as an adult. Adults show each other no mercy. If you fail to cultivate within yourself a fight-back mentality, society will end up controlling you.
All architecture has a public nature, I believe, so I would like to make a public space.
If you give people nothingness, they can ponder what can be achieved from that nothingness.
If there is only one culture all over the world, that’s not a good thing.
