Toyo Ito in 100 words.

Toyo Ito – On Vortexes

Toyo Ito in summary takes an ethereal almost nebulous approach to architecture. He states that formality is not a boon to architecture but the unstable and more chaotic side of architecture is what truly creates unique spaces.
This chaos is not arbitrary but is the effects of controlled movements. Waves caused by the ideas of the architect.
Toyo Ito also purports that there is no perfect response to a context because the site may change at any time .An architect can only seek to stir the waters of the city to create a vortex. A unique area in the water where forces meet.
