I, as Claudia Maggi, was born in an architect's family and grew up always in contact with Italian architecture. In particular, my mother and grandfather, who studied at the Politecnico of Turin, Italy, has had a great influence on me, and I was always interested in the process from one line to the construction of space and its grandeur. In particular, Carlo Mollino's Teatro Reggio Torino, who was also my mother's teacher, still make me feel excited to be an architect.

Yuichi and I both went to college where the members of Archigram were the principals. Although they were different universities, Ron Heron and Peter Cook cultivated the importance and expression method of pursuing architectural dreams, future possibilities, and excitement. Through our experience at the Swiss architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron and KPF, we are working to realize the influence in various ways.

We are conscious of creating ever-flowing spaces that have a story to tell regardless of project type or scale. We perceive notional connections between spaces through site-specific environmental conditions. We are not afraid to propose spaces that can be experienced through carefully com-posed proportions and chosen materials regardless of indoor-outdoor transition. We love to use all of our past experiences in architecture, art, and landscape to create a comprehensive experience.
