MASAYUKI KUROKAWA ARCHITECT STUDIO+K-SYSTEM
I think of objects as living beings.
When an object is finaly completed after I’d given it shapes and function from raw raw materials, the object clearly begins to assert itself.
When I have finished making them,these objects which were meant to be the media of my creative expressions become independent entities that start talking to me on an equal basis.
