Despite the great number of practitioners and students in attendance (almost a full-house), the event felt more like an intimate conversation with the architect, as he shared his unique brand of architectural investigation. 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.
