Japanese Architect Offices – Architect Listings

This page contains a selection of major Japanese architects, with links to individual practice pages. We’ve selected what we feel are the key Japanese Architects, but additions are always welcome. The focus is on contemporary architects in Japan but information on traditional architecture studios is also welcome.

Japanese architects have a strong reputation worldwide with many practices working globally. Currently the most notable architecture practices are SANAA, Tadao Ando, Toyo Ito, Fumihiko Maki and Kisho Kurokawa.
