Constructing Japan

Keynote Speakers: Madoka Aihara en Bas Spaanderman

We are YUUA, an architectural firm consisting of Madoka Aihara & Bas Spaanderman based in Tokyo, Japan. For us, architecture is a craft; we create a unique habitat for every assignment. The relationship between people, light, nature and materiality is the central story of our work. Tradition, local culture and aesthetics are our inspiration for future architecture. We give a lecture on how Japanese architecture, urban planning and infrastructure have developed over the past 100 years, in order to gain insight into a completely different culture, tradition and society from the eye of an architect.
