Junichiro Azuma

June 2005 Established JA laboratory

We have been “researching” a space that offers wonderful communication; a restaurant where you have a meal, a bar you enjoy a cocktail of your choice, a conference room you give an important presentation, a living room you get relaxed , a park you play with your family …

The starting point of communication is to face each other. I design “space” between two factors facing each other. “The visible” and “The invisible” filled in “space”.
