About Syuko Kato


Syuko Kato

For me architecture is a process of realising a site’s potential, exploring possibilities and instigating actions which come from questioning the assumptions that are made in the traditional disciplines of design. I endeavour to find fresh approaches to design which go beyond these traditional disciplines. From a viewpoint of “interactive design,” which gave birth to my thought processes, these cases of experimental design suggest that the concept of space design could be extended far beyond conventional boundaries. Thus interactive communication may be encouraged in a variety of fields thereby creating a fusion of disparate disciplines, which may previously have been considered to be irreconcilable.
