BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES
 
 
Junya Ishigami founded his prize-winning architectural firm, Junya Ishigami + Associates, in 2004. The studio’s design philosophy explores pushing the boundaries of what is possible in architecture, by challenging existing architectural methodologies and proposing alternatives. Projects have ranged from the Kanagawa Institute of Technology’s KAIT Workshop in 2007; a kindergarten with cloud-shaped walls in Atsugi, which was also a presentation at the Venice Architecture Biennale and won the Golden Lion in 2010; and last year’s exhibition at the Fondation Cartier in Paris titled ‘Freeing Architecture.’ The studio is currently working on a university multi-purpose plaza, Chapel of Valley, a worship space to be built in Rizhao, China; the redevelopment of the Russian Polytechnic Museum in Moscow; the Park Groot Vijversburg Project in the Netherlands; and residential projects in Dali, China. In 2014, Ishigami was appointed as the Kenzo Tange Design Critic at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He also teaches internationally, currently at Columbia University.
