Suzuki`s architecture revolves around a series of dualities or oppositions. It arises, in part, from a personal tendency to see the world in terms of duality, a dualism consisting of good and bad, male and female, plus and minus, life and death, etc. These dualities are twofold concepts. Just as there is no darkness without light, we recognize the only because of the contrast it presents with its opposite.
