Where is the paradigm shift of this age leading? I consider the 21st-century world order to be an age of symbiosis, and the architecture of this new age to be one of symbiosis, or intercultural architecture. (...) The age of symbiosis is an age that is capable of bridging dualistic oppositions such as globalism and regionalism, university and individuality, or nature and technology.
¿Hacia dónde se dirige el cambio de paradigma de nuestra era? Yo considero que será una nueva era de simbiosis, y su arquitectura será del mismo modo de simbiosis o intercultural. (...) La era de la simbiosis será capaz de conectar conceptos opuestos tales como globalización y regionalismo, universalidad e individualidad, o naturaleza y tecnología.

Yoh has said that his own works are "architecture for the enjoyment of nature, a Japanese tradition." Japanese culture, of course, includes formal and artistic traditions that are visible to the eye, but it places even more emphasis on ones that are intangible. These include aesthetic consciousness, life style, and philosophy.  (...) Shoei Yoh's concept of "architecture for the enjoyment of nature" can be viewed as a continuation of the spirit of Japanese gardens and sukiya-zukuri tea houses, which are created with a sensitivity to natural light, wind, and sound.
Yoh ha dicho que su trabajo es "una arquitectura para el disfrute de la naturaleza, de la tradición japonesa". La cultura japonesa, claramente, incluye tradiciones formales y artísticas que son visibles al ojo humano, pero tienen un énfasis aún mayor aquellas que son intangibles. Éstas incluyen la estética de la conciencia, estilo de vida, y filosofía. (...) El  concepto de Shoei Yoh de "la arquitectura para el disfrute de la naturaleza" puede ser entendido como una continuación del espíritu de los jardines japoneses y las casas del té  las cuales fueron creadas con una sensibilidad a la luz natural, el viento y el sonido.
