1. Where are you from and what brought you to Japan? I’m from Oakland (California). Architecture brought me to Japan — a one-year masters program in collaboration with my school in Paris.

2. Do you have a favorite architect? I don’t really have a favorite architect, but rather favorite architecture. I’ve always been a fan of minimalist architecture — simple design inspired by constrained spaces. There’s a book called “Pet Architecture” by Atelier Bow-Wow that illustrates many examples of small structures. Usually such spaces tend to be overlooked, but in Japan they are often well-designed, right down to the details. More with less.
