Ryue Nishizawa

I've been a bit obsessed with looking at home renovations and architecture as our house is in desperate need of a revamp. Ryue Nishizawa is a Japanese architect I'm in love with. He loves to mix up the indoor and outdoor spaces as much as possible. The top image is his office space, and the other two are residential jobs he's done. He and his partner Kazuyo Sejima will be designing the Serpentine Gallery pavillion which will be open from July to October 2009. I got the above images here, here and here.
