About the architect:

Kazumasa Yamashita, born in Nagoya in 1937, is known for his post-modern designs. Of note is Face House (1974) in Kyoto, and the From First Building (1976) in Omotesando. In the 1960s he worked at Nikken Sekkei in Tokyo, with a brief stint at Paul Schneider-Esleben’s architectural practice in Germany in 1964, the architectural division of the London government in 1965, and for architect Colin St. John Wilson in 1966. He founded his own architectural firm in 1969.
