|The title "Where shall we live"
reminds me of the event which had been held three
years ago. It seems to me even as if it was
yesterday. I was received very warmly by the
teachers and students and their passion towards
architecture moved me.
I was convinced that the architects who will
represent Asia should come out from them.
When I think of my architecture, I
always imagine the scenery of Bangkok where
people living near the river. They may not have
been given much material things, however, I think
that the life surrounded with nature: water,
trees, produce their radiant smiles.
Their natural houses are my ideal for housing.
It will not take so much time to make
all the world connected together by the computer
system. I consider that the combination of
primitive nature space and electronic technology
will make the tomorrow utopia. The theme of
contemporary architecture would be the way how
you will describe it in architecture.
