50 Architects’ Offices

Architects’ offices are environments where new architecture is born. Especially now, many architects are trying new approaches in response to developments like environmental requirements, improved construction technology, and the acceleration and diversification of communication and design technology, all of which have led to a search for new design styles. An architect’s office, where these trends can be seen in concentrated form, is an expression of an attitude taken toward architecture.In this issue, we introduce 50 architectural offices and the results of a survey about work styles, sustainability, and the their office in th next 10 years. We also interviewed eight architects. Bijoy Jain of Studio Mumbai talked about a design process rooted in Indian sensibilities. Yoshiharu Tsukamoto of Atelie Bow-Wow, which has attracted worldwide attention for its unique perspective on the city of Tokyo, talks about how he thinks the 21st century will inherit and renovate the architectural framework of the 20th century.These questions to architects around the world may provide a hint about what lies in store for architecture.
