HitoshiSaitou, former director of the Cultural Affairs Department of NHK, delivered a lecture on the designing ideas and life philosophy of TadaAndo, a world-famous master architect at the No.2 Board Room of the DPU library on the morning of 18th June 2014. This lecture is the third one of the lecture series held by the Joint Campus. Students and teachers from the Joint Campus, School of Art & Design and School of Fashion attended the lecture.

Focusing in particular on the theme “TadaAndo---ideas and philosophy”, HitoshiSaitou went further into a glimpse of TadaAndo’s works, designing origin, some of design projects in China as well as designing ideas and life philosophy.

By concluding his lecture, HitoshiSaitou shared three suggestions with the audience. First, communicate designing ideas with others; second, be creative and individual on designing and finally, integrate traditional elements into modern design.
