Itsuko Hasegawa Atelier
I started to like the projects by Itsuko Hasegawa, there are alot of interesting project by this female architect for ex: Yamanshi Museum of Fruit, Shonandai Cultural Center and Niigata City Performing Arts Center . Most of them are very sensitive and creative.
However, it is so hard to look for details about her.
