There will be no posts by Gero this week, who is engaged in rush work and at the site the whole week. While he is away from his computer, I will feature, Katsutoshi Sasaki, a still unknown young architect based in Toyota (The home of Toyota Motor Corporation).
Born in 1976, after working for Norisada Maeda for a few years, Katsutoshi Sasaki has designed some interesting houses and buildings. I feel his work deserves some attention and am happy to show a few examples of his work this week.
