The softness of the cork can solve many problems of the society and also it can open new possibilities of architecture and design. Most of the materials we are using in the twentieth century are concrete, steel and glass, which are very hard and cold materials, but cork is the opposite, it's warm and soft, and heat can heal the heart of people today. - Architect Kengo Kuma. The Towada Community Center is a great example of the contrast of soft and hard materials, highlighting the timeless and warmth quality of cork.
