"To think about architecture everyday is to reach beyond the present with an awareness of design worldwide and to see architecture as a handicraft that survives us". This quote from Chiaki Arai sums up the entire design philosophy of an architect deeply entrenched in Japanese tradition, but equally open to modernity, new concepts of space and the environment, and new forms of technology.
