summary It is apparent that recent development of digital technology has shifted the paradigm of the socio-economic system of the world as well as the style of day-to-day communication in our lives, as professor Mitchell suggested in his book. In the field of architecture, there have been many prospective studies on the development and applications of digital technology to architectural design practice and education. However, the reactions of the architecture community to such technological development have been slower and weaker than researchers initially expected. Is this because developed technology has overlooked some of essential needs of the community while seeking tasks for itself or because present technology is still insufficiently developed to attract people to new ideas? One of Japan's great samurai sword masters, Musashi Miyamoto, spent the last years of his life in Kumamoto where he wrote The Book of Five Rings. The most important element of his work was his concept of rhythm and harmony; how all things are in harmony, and how by working with the rhythm of a situation we can turn it to our advantage with little effort. The conference aims to provide the participants with an opportunity to explore visions and ideas on the digital technology that could enhance Rhythm and Harmony in architectural design practice and education.
