Philosophy

 

YDS Architects has visions that architectures and cities are beautiful and functional.

On designing architectures,the practice keeps in mind natural factors such as light,wind,and rain.

The practice aims to create beautiful spaces with nature where people feel the transition of light and shadow.

 

Driven by the vision 'Architecture is Art and Science',YDS Architects aims to realize compatibility of beauty and scientific approach concerning eco system.

To question the interrelationship between architecture and nature is to rethink human life within architectures.

On designing residential buildings,the practice thinks over the meaning of ‘living together’, and try to connect housings with cities by making public spaces like squares and paths.

Referring to the historic spaces such as traditional Japanese roji and western plaza,the practice design bountiful and vigorous spaces of plazas and streets in housings.

 

Housings are like small cities for residents,therefore they always design spaces where residents would meet and enjoy with each other.

Creating squares with trees where people feel nature such as light, wind, air and rain is one of their solutions.

By realizing architectures one by one,they intend to stimulate cities and invoke communications between architectures and cities.

 

Voids are very important elements of architectures,thus, YDS Architects continue to pursue dramatic spaces by designing voids, to seek to create inner and outer voids as efficiently as possible.

YDS Architects usually use simple geometric forms like circles, squares, and uniform grids.

By employing simple geometry as a methodology, order of spaces would come into being.

 

Simple concept of voids and spaces of plazas and streets while taking in nature would make spaces beautiful and comfortable to live in.

Based upon five principles below,YDS Architects design architectures and cities.
