“It’s such a great honor to be invited to this TOTO event. It’s a world class lecture. He is an architect who pays attention to both the social and environmental context. In my opinion, it is the subtlety that the architect should pay more attention to. It is the bridge and the integration of various architectural concepts. At this point, I think TOTO is on the right track.”

“Having an opportunity like this is remarkable. Therefore, I’m so glad that TOTO invited Mr. Yamanashi to the lecture today. I learned a lot and broadened my perspectives on design. Nowadays’ design trend may be coming back into the sustainable design phase. Mr. Yamanashi talked extensively about the eco footprint, and context-sensitive design. It helps us realize that when we design, we need to pay closer attention to context. Increasing apprehension about the impacts on society. We appreciate TOTO giving architects, like us, a chance. To invite an architect to the lecture who we might rarely be able to meet. It’s a wonderful opportunity. I sincerely appreciate it. Please continually hold events like this.”

TOTO held the social activities with the passion of becoming a bridge to exchange the culture and ideas of architects and designers in accordance with its Global Environmental Vision, which values people’s lifestyles in all dimensions, including cleanliness and comfort, the environment, and relationships. Thus, we held the lecture event for that reason, including other beneficial activities in cooperation with the Association of Siamese Architects under the royal patronage. For example, sponsoring ASA Run events in 2018 – 2019, holding the factory tour activity, holding design competitions which are “TRANSIT CENTER DEVELOPMENT 2019” and “THE BANGKOK TOILET DESIGN 2022” that allow architects and students who are the new generation have the opportunity to show their skills in designing public restrooms, holding Academic seminar on Universal Design for everyone, etc. Additionally, we previously held the lecture event “Shigeru Ban Lecture 2019,” which attracted a lot of interest and earned positive feedback from people in the architecture and design fields. As a result, the architect lecture was held once again this year.
