About the Author:

Born in Japan in 1941, Toyo Ito graduated from Tokyo University’s Department of Architecture in 1965. After working for Kiyonori Kikutake Architects from 1965 to 1969, he started his own studio, Urban Robot (urbot) in 1971, in Tokyo. In 1979, the studio changed its name to Toyo Ito & Associates, Architects. From his early White U in 1976 and Silver Hut in 1984 (both residential projects), to the much larger Sendai Mediatheque (2000) and Island City Central Park GrinGrin (2005), Ito has shown himself to be one of the most radically creative and influential architects of his generation. Ito has won many awards, including the Brunner Memorial Prize in 2000 and the RIBA Gold Medal in 2006.
