AS A TRAVELER AND LOVER OF JAPAN, WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THIS COUNTRY ?
First of all, it is a love relationship because my wife is Japanese. So, I am first in love with a Japanese woman who turns out to be an architect. She therefore shared with me her admiration for her peers : Sanaa, Toyo Ito or the designer Oki Sato. And of course, Kengo Kuma. I love the everyday life in Japan, this somehow daily invisible culture. It is a bit the subject of my book about Japan.
