The first monograph on the Japanese-born, Sydney-based architect, celebrated for his innovative holistic approach to design, nature, and urbanism.

Koichi Takada is part of a new generation of architects striving to bring nature back into the urban environment--an approach he developed after living in Tokyo, New York, and London. His architecture reconnects people to the natural environment, drawing inspiration from organic forms and local contexts.

This elegant volume showcases a series of Takada's recent projects, illustrating the unique way his talent connects the natural and the designed, and how it has evolved over the last ten years. Beautiful photographs of buildings and interiors juxtapose against sketches and images of nature--illustrating the aesthetic inspirations behind the designs and the way they embody light, air, and even sound. Philip Jodidio's texts guide readers through the range of public spaces that span from interiors of the award-winning National Museum of Qatar in Doha to striking buildings in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Los Angeles, and the construction of the new YouTube Space in Tokyo. This unique architectural journey will inspire readers to see architecture with a new mindset.
