Shin Takamatsu’s monumental architecture.
“Speaking in short Japanese sentences, he told of his father, a fisherman, who distrusted people who talked too much, for they scared the fish away. Or as Shin added: ‘Architecture says more than words. I think I should vanish from the site now…’ A very humble attitude for a man who usually makes large, monumental architecture.”

and here for an 80’s video of one of his lectures at Sci-Arc (clearly not a digital recording but you still get to see some of the work)
and a review of Takamtsu’s exhibition and thoughts about technology
