Professional Qualification First-class architect in Japan, No. 372825

I learned architecture in the environment, surrounded by professors and friends from different culture and background, which broaden my world of imagination and eventually made myself very into exploring architecture and history of art. Hence, I am an architect but simultaneously I have strong interest towards colours, art, imagination and narrative which cannot be separated from thinking architectural space.

I love one of the philosophies of TPOD, going beyond the border of nations and culture through design. I am looking forward to try discovering delight in architecture. I am always inspired by Lina Bo Vardi’s architecture, Henri Matisse’s colours, Mother and Grandmother.
