SIGN OF THE FUTURE

Bunzo Ogawa - Future Studio

14th Jan 2015

Born in Yamaguchi, Bunzo Ogawa of Future Studio may only be 35 years old, but in his short life he has managed to achieve a hell of a lot.

One of Japan’s leading architectural practices, Future Studio is based in Hiroshima and is responsible for such design masterpieces as the acclaimed Light Stage House, Beam House and Wrap House. The latter is a private family dwelling in Hiroshima where the walls of the building extend to enclose a garden and first-floor terrace. Without compromising the privacy of the inhabitants, a diagonal cut into the surrounding wall permits light into the garden and terrace spaces. Constructed from timber and clad in black galvanised steel plates, the structure is a contemporary marvel, typical of the firm’s calm aesthetic, and quite unique.


A groundbreaker in Japanese architecture, Ogawa spent years at Foster & Partners and Atelier Jean Nouvel before establishing his own firm. Winning design award upon award, it’s safe to assume he has the architectural world bowing at his feet.
