A lectio magistralis given by Kengo Kuma on the culture of design that combines natural and highly technological elements.
Bamboo and carbon fiber on stage in the courtyard of the University of Honor (see the installation by Kengo Kuma with Oppo), represent the metaphor between naturalness and innovation which, combined with the value of the relationship between space, light and time represent the philosophical summa of the Japanese architect.
Finally, music, as a structural element of space, becomes the body of a place where architectural space and musical time are integrated, forming a perceptive unicum.
