Japanese Architecture

Since 1992, when Dr. Hitoshi Abe won first prize in the Miyagi Stadium competition, he has maintained an active international design practice based in Sendai, Japan, and Los Angeles, as well as a schedule of lecturing and publishing, which placed him among the leaders in his field. Known for architecture that is spatially complex and structurally innovative, the work of Atelier Hitoshi Abe has been published internationally and received numerous awards.

Before founding this architecture firm in 1993 in Sendai, Japan, the architect worked with celebrated Austrian architects Coop Himmelb(l)au in Los Angeles from 1988 -1992.

He opened a second office in Los Angeles in 2008 to work on a series of projects outside of Japan. These projects included invited architectural competitions and exhibition installations.

Abe is also the director of Paul I. and Hisako Terasaki Center for Japanese Studies and holds the Terasaki Chair for contemporary Japanese study.
