Architecture is close to us and has a lot to do with us unconsciously. It is a place where we live our ordinary lives and it works as a medium in providing opportunities to foster the relationship between the city and people as well as create various activities for people to communicate with each other.

Architecture generates new experiences and inspirations. This lecture will examine architecture as an impetus through the works of Yuko Nagayama.
