About this video

Architecture has evolved through the centuries, adjusting and acquiring the shape and conditions each society requires. In this conference, Taira Nishizawa compares contemporary and modern architecture. He begins by explaining the principal characteristics of contemporary architecture, which he identifies as natural, phenomenal, magical, and varied. He describes several of his own contemporary projects, focusing on each one's unique characteristics, from structural elements and materials to lighting and interior design. Based on his professional experience, he discusses the types of structures he prefers, how they influence the building's ambience, and how a variety of elements, both natural and artificial, can provide a delightful touch to the final project.
