JA+U Interviews Japanese Architect Kumkio Inui

JA+U presents this brief interview with Japanese Architect Kumiko Inui of the Office of Kumiko Inui. The interview gives an inside look at to how architects choose to design. In Inui’s case, she explains how drawing and sketching is a way for her to explore her ideas in concepts, schematics and tectonics.

Through iteration and reinterpretation, Inui explains how an idea from the depths of her subconscious, eventually surfaces.
