This talk will illustrate how a range of traditional Japanese built forms responded to distinctive materials, objects and moments.  It suggests that the built acknowledgement of such events can help to affirm the individuality of our own being, and that buildings can also help us to share the normally subjective experiences of this, here, and now.
