I think humans can’t live apart from nature.

This exhibition is an attempt to explore how architecture can restore the relationship between humans and nature.

My works evoke the animal side of humans by integrating various elements such as usage, structure, materials, and harmony with the surrounding area through simple ideas.

Creating diversity while being simple or being able to be diverse.

I want to cherish such values.

The installation that creates the exhibition space is made of 2.3m high and 30m long pieces of Japanese paper that are softly curved and joint at key points to create a self-supporting structure.

I want you to experience a new relationship between humans and the environment.

    Twenty-six species of the insect family Lampyridae, commonly known as fireflies, have been identified in the foothills of Appalachian Ohio.
