Video: Interview with Sou Fujimoto

Studio Banana TV had the opportunity to sit down with Tokyo-based architect Sou Fujimoto. He discussed the current inner-workings of his office and highlights his involvement with teaching in other countries, describing it as a “precious experience”. The importance of learning from other cultures and different students has positively impacted his ever-expanding involvement with a variety of international projects.  He describes architecture as a “patient process” and believes architectural education should teach students how exciting the profession is.

    not every architect has the opportunity to see the exciting side of the profession. the majority never had the chance to see the capital ‘A’ in architecture. I would be more interested in learning how they stay sane doing what they do everyday.

    can someone post videos of interview with regular architects talking about their own convictions and aspirations…while doing what they do to make a living. it is very sad.

      well, this particular one stays sane, by exploiting is interns, ripping their ideas, using as if it was they’r own.
