junya.ishigami+associates is an international architecture firm based in Tokyo, Japan. Established by Junya Ishigami in 2004, the firm gained international recognition following the completion of the Kanagawa Institute of Technology’s KAIT Workshop in 2007, which was awarded the Architectural Institute of Japan Prize in 2009. Similar success followed with exhibitions at Venice Architecture Biennales, the latter of which being awarded the Golden Lion for Best Project of the 12th Biennale in 2010. The office has continued to enjoy growing foreign attention for the wide range of design possibilities we explore, from numerous exhibitions and installation projects, such as ‘Ballon’ and ‘Table’, to large scale construction commissions: our current construction projects include a university multi-purpose plaza and a House&Restaurant project in Japan, the redevelopment of the Russian Polytechnic Museum in Moscow, as well as several residential complexes in Dali, China. Regardless of scale, each project is approached from a limitless and open-ended creative perspective to deliver a unique and inspiring outcome.
