@ VOL 166 ON SEP 11, 2019

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.
