On April 28th 2017 we have the honor of opening the exhibition 'Moving Materials - Hiroshi Sambuichi' at the Danish Architecture Centre (DAC). Before the opening, The Royal Danish School of Architecture in close collaboration with DAC and the Embassy of Japan host a lecture with Mr. Hiroshi Sambuichi.

Hiroshi Sambuichi is one of the primary architects when it comes to sustainable architectural experimentalists. Sambuichi's architecture is inspired by the forces of nature - by the movements in water, light and air. His approach illustrates how sustainable and poetic life in interaction with nature meets the challenges we are facing in the 21st century.

The exhibition and opening programme is a part of the official celebration of 2017 being the 150 year of diplomatic collaborations between Denmark and Japan.
