I have finished what I was tasked with at UPC. It is a great load off my mind.
Then after the dinner last night Enric suggested me that we have an international conference about architectural theory and design paying homage to Architect Kazuo Shinohara, for his high professional work instituting the Chair Kazuo Shinohara. This discussion may start with what Kazuo Shinohara still propose in the present. Then I think this could make us to think more profoundly and find out the new value of architecture for the future.
Proposers are Enric from Barcelona, Ernst from Vienna, me, and some from Tokyo Tech, some from shanghai, those are the core members and some believers like Christian Kerez from Swizland and others from all over the world.
I think I would like to held the meeting which has the same quality as the one in south east university in Nanjing annually. I hope we will continuously held that international meeting to make another movement for all over the world.
まったく人生わからんものだけれどsuch is lifeと今日朝飯を食いながら３人で人生の偶然に驚いたわけである。
The lecture of mine that is supposed to be held on this Thursday on UPC has been canceled for admistrational reasons. I feel sometimes the office workers in University all over the world including Japan are so cold and not very much helpful. Though it is a pity, I`ll do it in my friend`s architectural office tomorrow. I would like to discuss my recent works and thinking under the global intelligence.
By the way this is the third time when my lecture was canceled. The first one happened 4years ago in Shanghai. Canceling all the events including lecture related with or done by Japanese were directed by Chinese government for political reason, but the professor of Tonjing univ. was so kind to offer me an opportunity to give a kind of private lecture on campus.
The second one happened at Santiago Chile last year, at that time I could not be there because of the strike of the airport staffs. It could not be helped.
So it means that this cancellation of my lecture has been the first one during these past ten years.
