Details: says architect Hiroshi Kuno, "I think that the program of a residence is made of a small thing which cannot be expressed by language one by one. The general act in a residence, for example, eating, reading a book, sleeping, which considered clearly made to language is also made of continuation of a small thing. I thought that the form for such a nameless programs was required. People put various thoughts in the mountain and lake which form is not made for man. And nature accepts all such thoughts. The house where those who live here can write a scenario freely so that natural forms may be so."
