Activities per year
During earlier stays in Japan, in 2012 and 2014, I was struck by the great attention to detail, in the scale of the buildings, the streetscape, as well as in the clothing and the presentation of food. Life seems to be an accumulation of independent details that sometimes contrast considerably with one another. A city is made up of buildings, and they in turn are made up of details that have come about as a result of a combination of materials and their interrelations. Tradition, craftsmanship and the choice of materials play an important part in all this.
