“Building connections between people, architecture, and towns” Confort Special Talk Event
This event has ended.
At this event hosted by Confort, a magazine specializing in architecture and interiors, Masahiro Harada and Seikatsu Harada of Mount Fuji Architects Studio, and Terutaka Suzuki, an associate professor at Rissho University, will explore the connections between the human body, architecture and community. Mount Fuji Architects Studio handles a wide variety of projects, ranging from private homes to public facilities, and is a firm that carefully considers the characteristics of materials such as wood, earth, and metals, in its aim to construct totally original spaces. For them, it is vital that designs are informed by a strong understanding of the characteristics of the place that a building will stand. Here they will discuss the process of regional projects from the planning phase through to completion. Furthermore, Terutaka Suzuki, who is collaborating with the studio on a project in Uchiko, a town in Ehime Prefecture, is a figure who has been involved in community development throughout Japan, along with others such as Kengo Kuma, Kenya Hara and Makoto Umebara. This is an opportunity to hear these three individuals discuss their past and present projects, learning more about the future of the Uchiko project.
