The attitude of creating my architecture is very simple. I think that the architectural space is all about how to handle light and air. While responding to the role of architecture and the climate condition of the site, I always aim to create the beautiful light and comfortable air conditions for the space.

Specializing in architectural construction methods and design, I apply my research on the material construction of buildings to activities ranging from architectural design to criticism. My theory and practice aim toward the development of an architecture rooted in a richness of detail that have been lost in the modern era. I’m the curator of the Japan Pavilion at the 17th Venice Biennale of Architecture.
My books include “Co-ownership of Action: Trajectory of Elements” (TOTO Publishing, 2020), architectural works include “Kadowaki House” (2018), and awards include the Annual Architectural Design Commendation from the Architectural Institute of Japan (2020).
