Koichi Takada is a member of a new generation of architects that aim to ‘naturalise’ architecture in the urban environment – an approach he developed after living in cities of high urbanization: Tokyo, New York, and London.

In this interview, he talks about his latest projects, why bringing the ‘outside-in’ is the new black, and how COVID-19 has altered human activity for god and what this means for architects and designers both here and abroad.
