Project Leader

Daichi Jonathan Ichiriki

I was born and raised in the United States where trees and plants abound. When I returned to Japan, I was surprised and at the same time intrigued by the urban greenery and parks in Tokyo and how they were different in terms of scale and purpose from those of other countries. How can we have rich greenery in our city? With this vague question in mind, I studied landscape and urban planning, and got further initiated into the profound field of landscape architecture. At present, I am exploring ways to create spaces that are appealing to and appreciated by people and will be so for many years to come. My goal is to design a space that will not only meet the client’s needs and expectations solely within the boundary, but also have positive effects on surrounding areas. I intend to continue pursuing designs that will unify the internal and external of the project site, thus contributing to the betterment of the whole community.
