Kazuya Iwaki
Born in Kagoshima, and currently living in Tokyo. Kazuya Iwaki is an architect and a professor of Tokyo Denki University. He and his students keep close relations with Aramachishinden community more than 10 years. Main subject of his works is space. He explains space as a cup of soup. Space is composed of various elements (floor, wall, roof, window, furniture, material, color, texture, natural light, wind, smell, tree, plant, land, view, memory, history, culture, and people) and the tastes
provided from them are integrated into space. Like soup cooking, he is challenging to create tasty space.
