Charles Jencks begins his lecture on contemporary Japanese architecture by describing the schemes and traditions of Japanese culture. He touches on traditions such as natural materials, life cycles, dualities, planes, and asymmetry and how these elements will be seen again in contemporary Japanese practice under different guises, creating what he calls “multi-valant elements of meaning.” He summarizes these elements into what the Japanese refer to as “the National Style.”
