Japanese architect Takahashi Ippei had donated a signed work from a special apartment project. It is composed of a combination of hand drawings and photos, arranged by computer.

 

According to the architect, “The drawing was made for an apartment building of 12 rooms. The building has three stories, and each floor has four rooms. This drawing presents one floor. The composition is a little different from the stereotypical apartment; each room [offers] something luxurious spatially; a bathroom type space has a large tub in the center of the room [to] enjoy elegant bathing; a kitchen type room has a big cooking table or countertop; a living type room [is designed as] a greenhouse full of sunshine; and a study room could double as a small office. Altogether they form a community. The drawing presents how richly and lushly we can live together, and how fantastic [it is to also] remain unique in our own ways.”

 

Takahashi Ippei was born in Tokyo. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in architecture from Tohoku University and a Master’s degree from Yokohama National University. Upon graduating, he worked at the Office of Ryue Nishizawa, before establishing Takahashi Ippei Office in 2010. In addition to his architectural efforts, he currently teaches at both Hosei University and Yokohama National University in Japan. He has received numerous awards, including, among others, first prize for the 2020 design competitions for the Kasumigaura Lake public facilities and Yokohama National University Gate in Japan; a WADA Award for his Kawatani House in Japan (2019); Architectural Designs Young Architects Award from the Architectural Institute of Japan (2016); and first prize for the design competition for the restoration of the Shichigahama Nursery School in Miyagi, Japan (2011).
