CAMPTONがサポーターとして参加させていただいている、京都大学の学生が運営するGENIUS TABLE in Kyotoの会合が、先日オープンしたばかりのCAMPTON 10 西陣-有馬-で開催されました。CAMPTONの施設で開催されるのは今回が4回目になります。
今回のGENIOUSは、JICAのパレスチナ現地事務所長を経験され、現在同志社大学の准教授として教鞭をとられているIyas Salim先生でした。
会の終了後、出席者の皆さんでCAMPTON 10と、同じ敷地内に建つCAMPTON 9をご覧になり、我々の修復に対する技術のみならず、修復して町屋を残していく気持ちをご理解いただきました。特にIyas先生からは「今度友人を招待したい」とのお言葉を頂き非常に光栄でした。
