Following her study at the Delft University of Technology, Japanese architect Moriko Kira set up her own practice in Amsterdam in 1996, and has since both worked for the Dutch government and lectured in the Netherlands. Typical of her work is a variation in scale, programme and location, and she has completed projects in different Dutch cities, Belgium, the United Kingdom and Japan. Featured here are a church conversion in Groningen, a cemetery pavilion in Apeldoorn, housing in IJburg, a weekend house in Hakone, and several other projects. Besides the detailed essays by Kira that accompany each of these, Jo Toda also analyses her work and approach in a short text.
