Each project he presented helped substantiate his lifelong interest in blurring the boundaries of established architectural conceptions. Fujimoto explained that he is inspired by dissolving such falsely dichotomous themes as: nature and architecture, the house and the city, complexity and simplicity, or inside and outside, in order to examine the new possibilities that exist &ldquo;in between.&rdquo;</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/1y/1y8esce8bbx8agi9.jpg"></p><p>The lecture progressed rather linearly, tracing his practice's themes from their conceptual foundation in his &ldquo;younger ideas&rdquo; through to their mature forms.
