Visitors will find three components in the Kyoto Prize Room:
1. Message: Words of the Kyoto Prize laureates flow along the pillars.
2. Laureates as individuals: Touch and read laureates’ profiles and achievements. Watch interviews and listen to their voice.
3. Laureates in context: Touch and explore the world around the laureates including their experience as a child, befriending and impact on the society.
The message of the Kyoto Prize laureates includes words such as “I make film from my heart, not from my head. So I hope you watch with your heart.” (Akira Kurosawa | 1994 laureate in Arts and Philosophy) and “Work on what is beautiful to you.” (Karl Deisseroth | 2018 laureate in Advanced Technology). Pieces of their message become grains of LED light and flow over the surface of the marble pillars. In the “laureates in context” section, visitors can touch the laureates’ images on a five-meter wide interactive display.
