JA 108 is a special issue on architect Akihisa Hirata, surveying 15 years of his studio’s architectural production.

For Hirata, architecture is part of the living world. In his practice, he explores this notion through geometric systems, spatial design methods that incorporate diversity, and the implementation of concepts arising from research into organic connections—notably karamari (an “intertwined relationship”) and karamari-shiro (an “opportunity for karamari”). Working at various scales, he continues to propose new settings for human activities.

This issue introduces about 60 projects, including built architecture, installations, and unrealized proposals, dating from 2003 to the present. From one work to the next, he has developed new ideas and explored the realities of building architecture. We hope that our readers will find hints in these pages to aid in their own explorations of the architecture to come.
