Tsukuba’s Famous Architect
A Japanese architect from Tsukuba City will be on TV tonight (January 23, 2008). Akita is an award-winning architect with many interesting designs mostly in the Ibaraki, Tokyo, and Karuizawa areas. The company’s main office is in Tokyo but there is a research lab here in Tsukuba with foreign staff.
The show will be on from 6:55pm on Channel 6 (TBS). If you have time and are interested in seeing the residences of actors/actresses, then you might be interested in watching the show. Mr. Akita will be the design trend consultant for the show.
Also, for those Tsukuba residents who have some architectural projects in mind (new construction, renovation, property purchase) you can contact the office in both English and Japanese.
