Footnotes

Since I was young I was always thinking: How can I make things like Chopin? In music maybe it is possible, but in architecture it is so difficult. It is so difficult to make architecture perfect. Architecture is nothing more than an instrument, and we can compose a life. And that is exactly what is happening in the Fuji Kindergarten. For example, just after its completion, Chopin’s 'Fantaisie-impromptu' was in playing my head. ➡︎
