Jo Nagasaka / Schemata Architects
The evolution of Jo Nagasaka’s design process is unveiled in a unique publication about his studio’s work. The wide ranging portfolio of the Japanese firm Schemata Architects demonstrates its strengths and inspirational vision. Pinpointing the founder’s creative spark is what this book is all about. Nagasaka’s focus is often drawn to tired, found objects or unused spaces. Through investigations to seek modern solutions and pioneering repurposing techniques, he manages to transform interiors and breath life back into objects. His projects range from large-scale installations and interactive interior environments to smaller – scale products. Revealing insights into his way of working, the book highlights new findings about how the designer is able to capture the essence of his thoughts and relate the key aspects of a project in creative and innovative ways. The articles emphasise the designer's concepts, giving unique insight into the firm's process from the designer’s perspective.
