In designing landscape I pursue to
transform my sincere negotiation with my
and with the site we engage into utmost beauty
create a place where
our human instinct is replenished and
our human imagination
explore the universal motivation
of land-making from
among the diversity
set a stage where cultures
and Asia/Japan are challenged in confrontation
for their mutual enrichment
to the core of our life.
I admire a design process that starts from
open-minded conversation with the client to open up all the potentials
be discovered in
the site and in our human encounter. This is what Chado (the
Japanese Tea Ceremony) calls ichigo ichie: "Treasure
every encounter for it will never re-occur".
Let us treasure every encounter between us
and with our site, this particular site.
