A lecture by Tadao Ando

28 June 2006

'A dream is not simply something one sees. I think it is important to hold on to our hopes and to continue creating our dreams. Although many restrictions operate in the realm of architecture, it is not enough simply to use architectural methods to fulfil a set of imposed conditions. I would like to reflect on what challenges I have faced and what I have tried to contribute to society through my architectural projects so far. For me, "dreams" are not just my dreams, so I want to create a setting where people can explore together how to make their dreams come true.' (Tadao Ando)
