|After graduating from GSAPP, Columbia University (M.S. in Urban Planning) with honors and working for a couple of non-architectural firms in Tokyo, Shingo Tsuji has started his career as an professional architect by founding CHIASMA FACTORY in 2009. With his unique background in multicultural environments (notably his childhood experience in Las Palmas, Spain, and in the United States in his 20s) and interdisciplinary practice (psychology, music, and real estate), he has been passionately involved in many projects in and outside of Japan, regardless of locations, sizes and building types – ranging from architectural design, construction management, real estate development to various educational/research activities.
His recent works include ENISHI RESORT VILLA in Taiwan (won the 1st Prize in ADA Awards for Emerging Architects 2018, a collaborative project with N.Maeda Atelier, A.S.Studio, Kai Architects, and Atelier SHARE), and two major hotel projects in Japan (Dogo Miyu and Dogo hakuro). Regardless of place, size, and programs, his works are characterized by his commitment to the phenomenological understanding of time and space, as well as his awareness of locality, human sensibility, and interactive nature of architecture.
