Stephanie Forsythe and Todd MacAllen, lead designers and co founders of molo, will speak at The Royal Institute of British Architects along with Boonserm Premthada at Emerging Architecture: Storytelling, an event being held as part of the ar + d Awards for Emerging Architecture exhibition.
Enclosed by ribbons of twisted steel, molo design’s Nebuta House draws on Japanese building principles to create a new home for a national tradition. Nebuta Matsuri is a form of storytelling during which heroes and creatures from myths come to life as paper lanterns. Canadian practice molo discuss this unique cultural project. This talk accompanies the Emerging Architecture exhibition (until 29 February).

In Japan the beginning of January is an important time for visiting temples. During this time period it’s felt that what we do and the quality of how we do it will set the tone for the coming year in aspects of life such as prosperity, business, and health.
Ginkaku-ji, or the Temple of the Silver Pavilion is a Zen temple. The famous garden contains a carefully formed sand cone, said to represent Mount Fuji.
Kinkaku-ji or the Temple of the Golden Pavilion is another important Zen temple and a National Special Historic Site. A dusting of snow is usually only visible for a few days per year.
