Koichi takada

AN INTERNATIONAL NAME OF DESIGN EXCELLENCE.

Japanese-born Koichi Takada belongs to a new generation of architects bringing nature back into the urban environment. Once described as “the master of curves”, his architecture reconnects us to our natural surroundings – a signature design aesthetic that has won him an international reputation for design excellence. After working in Tokyo, New York and London, he established Koichi Takada Architects in Sydney in 2008. Here, he continues to be inspired by organic forms and local context; design traits that characterise AYA.

Sunflower House, Le Marche, Italy

“In nature nothing is straight. Nature constantly adapts to the changing environment and I see architecture as being very similar to nature.”

— Koichi takada
