“Our team looks for continuities. We do not try to battle ideas, instead believing at anywhere in the world, and at any time in history, it is possible to find continuity. Battles between history and current times are not good for creation or progress. In other words, old and new are part of a continuum. New creations always come out of continuity, out of an attitude of trying to find peace. It is not about copying the past, but about finding new ways forward while understanding past values. This is distinct from modernism, which stands in opposition to history for the most part—finding a battle with the past. This is also different from postmodernism, which simply quoted existing pieces and reassigned meaning, but was ultimately not a way forward. History and progress do not need to be mutually exclusive. It is always possible to find new things even within older principles.” -Kengo Kuma
