Tokyo House

While studying in Japan, Mr. Kohn worked with the eminent avant-garde Japanese architect, Takefumi Aida. Takefumi was known for his exploration of architectural form based on elementary volumes—cubes, cylinders, pyramids—or “Toy Block” houses. Eventually, the concept evolved to include more planar structures, like the one pictured here that Mr. Kohn worked on.
During his time in Takefumi’s office, Kohn was the designer for the winning entry for the master plan for the entrance gate and bus depot to the Kawasaki Train Station in Tokyo.
