Architecture is not just about buildings, itユs a philosophy about what people see and touch, and itユs not limited to physical existence; itユs much deeper than thatモ. Born in Fukuoka, educated in America, Matsuoka applies a touch of humanity to all of her projects from stylish coffee tables to 2km long bridges. Considering the tremendous development that Iユve witnessed since arriving here 14 years ago, I feel better knowing that architects like Matsuoka are working now on our behalf and that of our childrenユs.
