Koichi Takada belongs to a new generation of architects that strive to bring nature back into the urban environment. In 2008, Koichi established Koichi Takada Architects. He aims to bringing the nature that he loves, back into the ‘concrete jungle’, through design. His architecture is one that reconnects humans to the natural environment, drawing inspiration from organic forms and local contexts — an architecture that can be experienced through all the senses. His signature design aesthetic comes to life in his projects and has won him an international reputation for design excellence, and with that, a long list of media acknowledgements.
