A lecture by Japanese architect Hiroshi Sambuichi, who considers architecture as a natural part of the Earth, or “Details of the Earth”. By incorporating what Sambuichi refers to as “moving materials”, such as the air, water, and the sun, he strives to create architecture that becomes part of the Earth.

For Sambuichi, good architecture is when the moving materials of the location become apparent and heighten the beauty of the surrounding nature just by looking at the work. When architecture builds an intellectual relationship between people and the Earth and passes it on to future generations, he sees architecture as a letter to the future.

In this lecture, he will talk about his architectural philosophy from his early to his latest works such as “The Naoshima Plan ‘JU’”, which makes use of traditional Japanese construction methods in a modern context, and the plan to build “The fourth chamber for Cisternerne” in Frederiksberg.

Nature-In-Space: Connecting Nature and Interiors

We are thrilled to announce this unique international lecture series comprising ground-breaking architectural approaches where interior spatial design conducts an outstanding experience of the phenomenon of Nature. The lecture series will enrich our understanding of biophilic architectural design, a biological understanding of architecture, and stimulate the debate and interest in Nature-connected architectural interior design.

The lectures will be introduced and/or moderated by Professors Kirsten Marie Raahauge and Peter Thule Kristensen, and Postdoc Carmen García Sánchez. Organized by Carmen García Sánchez as part of her individual research project Nature-In, the research unit Center for Interior Studies, and the Master programme Spatial Design at the Institute of Architecture and Design, the lecture series combines contemporary design practice with scientific perspectives. The program aligns with the UIA2023CPH World Congress which will be hosted in Copenhagen in July 2023.

All students, architects, and designers – and those interested in architectural design – are invited.
