Fuminori Nousaku and Mio Tsuneyama are leading architects of an emerging generation that is reshaping Tokyo’s urban landscape. Interested in sustainability and adaptive reuse of existing architecture, the firm’s haptic approach can be witnessed in Holes in the House—on view in our current exhibition Made in Tokyo: Architecture and Living, 1964/2020. In this ongoing renovation project of a former four-story steel warehouse from the 1980s, the architects removed walls to let in natural light and cut holes into the floors for efficient heating and cooling. Nousaku and Tsuneyama will discuss this philosophy through their latest projects, exploring the potential to lead a more ecological and richly textured lifestyle in Tokyo today.
