Architect 5: Architecture as Sensuous Comfort
The architecture designed by the Tokyo-based firm Architect 5 brings together technical expertise and poetic imagination, serving society and analyzing forms. As the architects themselves say: "We enjoy the process of 'discovering' new designs, where we find the true joy of creation. The versatility characterizing their work is due to their desire to meet all the client's and society's demands, producing works ranging from a large urban park to the headquarters of an international enterprise, from tower blocks to shopping and entertainment facilities.
