The Meaning of Akiti

PRESENTED ON SEP 11, 2019
IN TOKYO @ VOL 166

Akiti is the Japanese word for “vacant land” - Akiti architects, Kuniichiro & Ai Yoshida get their inspiration from excitement of possibility of realizing what can exist in that “akiti”. Bringing the potential of the land to its fullest, they keep on finding ways in which keep architecture open, instead of letting architecture close the land it stands on.  

何もないのに何かある、何かできそうとついつい考え始めてしまうような場所のイメージ。その場所が持つポテンシャルを最大限引き出すべく、Akiti Architectsの吉田 州一郎吉田 あいは建築をつくる。建築によって場所を閉じてしまわない、建築の開き方について、二人の考えをプレゼンテーションしてもらおう。
