Team Biographies

Hirohito Kuroki, Architect

To Hirohito Kuroki, a building is more than a structure designed to shelter people from nature. As an architect, a building represents an environment where people breathe, walk, sleep, and live; an atmosphere where memories are created. The end result of building design is a space that arouses emotion.  

Unlike most architects, Hirohito is not afraid to get his hands dirty. Most architects are caught up with the romantic notion of being involved in a building but forget --or never-- knew the necessary steps required to transform design into reality.

With a background in design and training in the field of construction, Hirohito has never forgotten the beauty he has witnessed in construction sites, steel fabrication facilities, and even ship yards. Romance does not stop with the design for Hirohito, he sees his plans through. For him, the beauty lies in creating something out of nothing and watching thought become reality.
