EDITOR’S NOTES：Mr.Tetsuo Furuichi and Mr.Zhang Zenghui from Japanese Institute of Architects (JIA) conducted anexclusive interview with Mr. Toyo Ito in his office on Sep.24，2013. This article withtwenty thousand words is expected to present an over all perspective of Mr. Toyo Ito to Chinese readers.
TETSUO FURUICHI (FURUICHI)：THANK YOU FOR HAVING THIS INTERVIEW WITH US，MR.ITO. THROUGH THIS SPECIAL ISSUE，WE EXPECT TO OFFEROUR CHINESE AUDIENCE A THOROUGH VIEW OF MR. ITO AS AN ARCHITECT. THEREFORE，WE WOULD LIKE TO HEAR YOU TALK ABOUT YOUR LIFEEXPERIENCES FROM CHILDHOOD，TO HIGH SCHOOL，TO COLLEGE，AND YOUR CAREER PATH AS A PROFESSIONAL ARCHITECT THEREAFTER.
TOYO ITO (ITO)：You are very welcome. Feel free to ask anything，please.
FURUICHI：First of all，Mr. Ito，you are originally from the Nagano Prefecture in Japan，right？
ITO：Yes. My father moved from Kyushu to work in Seoul，Korea before the World War II，so I was actually born in Seoul in 1941，the year when the warbroke out.
FURUICHI：When did you move back to Japan from Seoul？
ITO：We went back to Japan when I was about two years old. Thewar was still going on. After our return，we lived in my father’s hometown in thecountryside，Shimosuwa Town of Suwa District.
FURUICHI：Suwa is the beautiful city located on the famous Lake Suwa， sn’t it？
ITO：It’s also well-known for its watch-making industry. We lived there until my third grade in junior high school. Then I moved to Tokyo，where I have livedever since.
FURUICHI：You went to Hibiya High School there and the University of Tokyo after that. Could you talk a little bit more about your life in college？How wasit like back then？
ITO：Well，I wasn’t studying really hard for the first two years on Komaba Campus. Therefore，when I advanced to junior year and had to choose a major，Ihad very limited choices. Out of all the options I had，architecture seemed better than the others， so I just went for it， just like a natural conclusion through
the method of elimination.
FURUICHI：But you were interested in art or that sort of things in the first place，weren’t you？
ITO：My father liked paintings，and he was a big fan of ceramics，too. To that extent，I was somehow affected by his passion for art. I started taking painting classes as an extracurricular activity in junior high school， but I wasn’t that into it. I was most passionate about baseball back then.
FURUICHI：So you played baseball during junior high school？
ITO：As for baseball，I was really working hard on it during junior high school. Then it sort of became just something for fun in senior high school，althoughI also played on the school team. Well，that team wasn’t very good anyway.
FURUICHI：WHAT WERE THE MOST MEMORABLE THINGS TO YOU ABOUT STUDYING ARCHITECTURE IN COLLEGE？
伊东∶我进大学那时正好是东京奥运会 即将到来的时候。当时丹下先生虽然还只是建筑系副教授，不过同时也已经是世界知名的建筑师了。新陈代谢派 都是三十来岁便脱颖而出，那时对他们很是羡慕。进入建筑系后，感觉制图有些难度，和以前相比学习上也认真起来了。那时我们这代多数人希望去工作室类型的单位工作，比如去了前川事务所 的大宇根 先生，去了芦原事务所 的松永 先生，还有的人去了增泽洵 或进来廉 那里。
ITO： The Tokyo Olympics was just around the corner when I was admitted to college.Mr.Tange has already been a world-famous architect by then，although he was only an associate professor in the Department of Architecture. Most of the Metabolists became noted in their thirties，which was quiteadmirable to me. After I enrolled in the Department of Architecture，I found it not easy to do drafting and designing ，so I studied harder than ever before.Back then，most architecture graduates of our generation wanted to work at studio-type firms. For example，Mr. Oune went to Mayekawa Associates；Mr.Matsunaga went to Ashihara Architects；some others went to Makoto Masuzawa9’s firm or Ren Susumurai10’s firm.
FURUICHI：Wow，quite a lot！So，what did Mr. Tange teach in his classes？
ITO：Mr. Tange was busy working on the Yoyogi National Gymnasium project at that time and barely showed up on campus. When he did come back toteach a few classes every now and then，he would just bring a bound volume of the Shinkenchiku journal and read some articles about the debates ontraditions. However，he did make quite an impression on me.
FURUICHI：What kind of impression？
ITO：I remember him wearing a bow tie and a green plaid jacket. Bell-bottoms were a hit during that time， so he also wore flared pants and pointed-toeleather shoes. Usually，if you saw someone dressed like that on the street，you probably would wonder “who’s that guy？”That kind of out fits were veryfashionable and cool back then，so Mr. Tange had once been rated as the best-dressed men by the media.
ZHANG ZENGHUI ( Z )：Was Mr. Tange always wearing outfits like that back then？
ITO：Most of the times，the bow tie was always there，and he always had that Regent hairstyle，with the hair on both sides combed to the back.
FURUICHI：So，what were the topics in the design class？
ITO：We had quite a few masters coming to our class. For instance，Mr. Makoto Masuzawa held a session on housing design. Mr. Yoshitake was stillingteaching there at the time，so he also held a few sessions. Mr. Tange was working on the design of the Dentsu Building，so he used that project as the topicof our class assignment.
FURUICHI：Is that the Dentsu building located in Tsukiji？
Ito：That’s right. Although Mr. Tange did show up at the final review，it was more like a mere formality，with a very relaxed ambience.
FURUISHI：What did you do for your graduation project？
Ito：I designed the renovation plan of the Ueno Park and received the award for the best thesis： the Tastuno Award. The plan laid out a strong axis infront of where the Tokyo National Museum is now located. The buildings were arranged along that axis while the old Tokyo Festival Hall and the NationalMuseum of Western Art were preserved. When I look back at it now，I won’t be proud of this plan，honestly. I guess it was awarded because of the passionand enthusiasm I put in the work.
FURUICHI：AFTER GRADUATION FROM COLLEGE， YOU WORKED AT THE KIKUTAKE ARCHITECT AND ASSOCIATES. COULD YOU PLEASE TALK MORE ABOUT THAT？
ITO：I remember there was a design competition for the Kyoto International Conference Center in my junior year. Itsuko Hasegawa，who joined theKikutake Architects one year earlier than I did，was still a senior in college then. She told me that she helped the firm with their competition entry. I didn’tknow about their entry until later，though. Besides projects like that，Kikutake Architects just completed the design of the Administrative Building of IzumoShrine and announced their design for the Toukouen Hotel. After I saw those projects，it occurred to me that I wanted to join their firm. I interned therefor about a month during the summer before my senior year，which could be seen as the beginning of my architecture career. Although I did earn somepraises for my thesis project in college，I didn’t really have much confidence as an architect，to be honest. However，during my internship at the KikutakeArchitects，through a month’s open-desk experience，I actually learned about how decisions were made in architectural design.
FURUICHI：So how did you make decisions there， to be exact？
ITO：With highly intensive focus. When it had to be done，all decisions were made in one night. Instantaneous decision-making requires a tremendous concentration of energy. On the contrary，sometimes a design that has been reviewed and modified repeatedly for one or two months would ended up beingdiscarded and started all over again. Every time when I saw that happen，I felt the urge to pull myself together and to work even harder，or else it wouldn’teven be possible to get a design done. It felt like what I learned there was something that resonated deeply in my heart. So，on the last day of my open desk，Iasked Mr. Kikutake for a full-time position at the firm after graduation，and he happily nodded. Just like that，I joined the firm the very next year.
FURUICHI：Who were you working with at that time？
伊东∶也就十来人。其中内井昭藏先生 在最上面，接着是武者英二先生 等，还有最近较少出现的，比如土井鹰雄先生 等，另外还有在岩手县盛冈工作的久慈 先生，这些人那时都在一起。
ITO：Only about a dozen or so. At the very top，there was Mr. Shozo Uchii，the leader of the team. Right under him，there were Mr. Eiji Musha and severalothers，including several designers who are less active these days，such as Mr. Tako Doi，etc. Also，there was Mr. Kuji，who is now working in Morioka，Iwate Prefecture. These designers were all working together at that time.
FURUICHI：What about Mr. Endo ？
ITO：Right，Mr. Endoalso worked there. We inadvertently called Mr. Uchii，Mr. Endou and Mr. Kuji “the Three Masters ”. Working under them were Mr.Musha and Mr. Doi. We called the five of them “the Five Men”. The hierarchical structure of the firm was very clear-cut back then. Once Mr. Kikutakedistributed the tasks，the Three Masters would start working immediately，Mr. Uchii sketching on the site plan，Mr. Kuji drawing the elevations， whileMr. Endo working on the details. Such a highly organized system，with one order followed by instant design actions，almost resembled an army，a well-disciplined one. Mr. Senda and Ms. Hasegawa joined the firm one year earlier and I joined the firm the very next year. That was also the time when theteam structure became a bit disorganized. People spent most time on bragging and little time on really doing the work. Well，Ms. Hasegawa was actuallyquite diligent，but Mr. Senda and I were among those who talked a lot most of the times.
FURUICHI：What projects did you work on during that time？
ITO：In my first year，the firm was working on the Miyakonojo Convention Center project，which I had participated in during my internship. They were aboutto start the design phase at that time，so I was assigned to conduct the design survey all by myself. I worked on that for a month and concluded with a finalpresentation. When I visited the project site the very next year，I was really surprised that the project had already been built up. Also，when I joined the firm，the Tokyu Corporation just appointed Mr. Kikutake to work on the master plan of the corridor area along the Ten-en-toshi Line，so I was mostly working onthis project for my first two years at the firm. The Line was not open yet and the entire site was all farmlands at the time. That was a project started fromsite planning，therefore，instead of substantial architectural design，we worked on the master plan and the preliminary plan of the apartment buildings，etc.
FURUICHI：What other projects did you work on after that？
ITO：A year later，I was assigned to work on the design of the Itabashi District Kindergarten. I think that building still exists there.
FURUICHI：Ah，it’s a must-see then.
ITO：I only worked on the design phase and we did not participated in on-site supervision later on. So，I guess it’s not the best candidate to be presented asone of Mr. Kikutake’s signature pieces.
FURUICHI：How long did you work at the Kikutake Architects？
ITO：Four years even. In the latter two years，I was mostly working on the preparation for the Osaka World Expo’70.
FURUICHI：Was it the comprehensive plan？
ITO：Yes. Mr. Tange was the general director of the master planning，while Mr. Isozaki ，Mr. Kikutake，and Mr. Otaka were working under him. They werethe key figures who set up and led the preparation committee. In addition，each firm was asked to assign a junior staff member to work on the project，likea hostage，and I was one of them. The preparation committee was set up in the same building where Mr. Tange’s design firm was located，just one floorunderneath. They held weekly meetings to discuss the designing ideas，which would then be drafted into drawings by us junior designers in the following week.
FURUICHI：Sounds very interesting.
ITO：Indeed. Thanks to those meetings，I had the chance to closely interacted with Mr. Isozaki and Mr. Tange.
FURUICHI：Was that when you knew Mr. Isozaki？
伊东∶是的。那时大约是在1967～ 1968 年吧。
ITO：That’s right. It was around 1967-1968.
FURUICHI：During the Expo preparation work，you must have met lots of people who you knew of，I guess？
ITO：Well，I knew them，but actually they were already well-established senior designers while I was merely a young junior staff member. I would beoverjoyed to just have a word or two with them.
FURUICHI：Who else were working on the preparation committee？
伊东∶工作团队中，丹下先生那里的人样子还记得，不过项目之后也没有继续交往了。那时学生运动正闹得越来越激烈了。尤其是全共斗组织 那帮人。由于还留在学校的我大学时的同学也都参加了学运，夜晚便常被叫到那些地方去。说是集会，其实也就是做募捐。所以昼夜的工作内容是截然断裂的状态。学运在1969 年达到高潮，连学校也被封锁了。当时我想这样两头做事也吃不消，干脆重返校园学习吧。可是大学都被封锁掉了，所以1969 年辞职后就不得不开始单干了起来。
ITO：Among the team members，I could still remember the faces of those from Mr. Tange’s office，but we did not have much interaction after the project.The students’ movement was getting more and more fervent at that time，especially for those in the Zenkyoto. Some of my college friends who stayedin school took part in the movement，so I was often asked to go with them at night. Those so-called rallies were actually just fund-raising activities. Duringthat time，I was doing completely different things in the day and at night. The students’ movement reached its peak in 1969，when schools were blockaded.I found it too exhausting to participate in the movement while still working on my job，so I thought，well，why not quit the job and just go back to school.Unfortunately， the universities were all blocked，so I had to start my own practice after I quit from the Kikutake Architects in 1969.
FURUICHI：WHAT TYPES OF PROJECTS DID YOU INITIALLY WORK ON AFTER YOU STARTED YOUR OWN PRACTICE？
ITO：At the beginning，I did not have even a single project contract，since I was not prepared to work independently when I quit the job. My brother-in-lawin Shinshu，who is much older than me，inherited the miso brewery factory from his father. He happened to visit Tokyo at the time and was about to opena gallery of ceramics， which my father really loved. So he sold the land and the factory in Shinshu and bought a small piece of land in Tokyo，where heplanned to build a small four-storey office building with a mini gallery on the ground floor. I asked him to let me design the building. After its completion，Irented the tiny space on the top floor，about 15 tsubos25，and worked there for quite a few years. It is located not far from my current office actually.
FURUICHI：The name of your studio was initially called URBOT，wasn’t it？
FURUICHI：What kind of studio was it？
ITO：Originally，I set up the studio together with my classmate Yoshio Tsukio26，who worked on transportation planning at Mr. Tange’s firm. Tsukio was notinterested in architectural design. Instead， he wanted to do something else，like developing computer software，which was the most cutting-edge work atthat time. Tsukio was developing the robot software for Expo ’70 for Mr. Isozaki then，so we named our studio “URBOT ”. We had even drafted the articlesfor setting up the firm already. We were expecting to open our joint business of computer software and architectural design when，all of a sudden，wereceived a message from Mr. Isozaki’s office，saying “hold on”. Tsukio was working closely with Mr. Isozaki’s office at that time，so it might not be the besttime to open his own business. Moreover，it was a very crucial time as the World Expo was just about to open. Given those reasons，Tsukio backed off，so Iended up starting my studio under the name URBOT all by myself. This is the story behind how I named URBOT，a name that may sound a little strange tosome people.
ITO：At the very same time，my bother-in-law，who I mentioned just now，came to Tokyo and built a house in Tsujido. That house is the later-calledAluminum House. He said to me：“You can design the Aluminum House the way you like it，but you won’t get any fee. I will pay you fees for the design ofthe office building，but you have to do it exactly as I say.” Just like that， under those conditions，I got two projects from my brother-in-law when I had noproject to do. The building in Aoyama was preserved until very recently，when my nephew and niece，who are also architects，tore it down and rebuilt it.
FURUICHI：WERE THERE ANY OTHER EMPLOYEES？
ITO：Only one employee，myself. Later，a young man read my article on a journal and insistently requested to work for me. Then he also referred a youngwoman graduated from a women’s university to the firm. So the three of us continued working together thereafter. After a while，Mr. Ishida Toshiaki27 cameto Tokyo from Hiroshima and joined us.
FURUICHI：Even Mr. Ito had a hard time like that！
ITO：Indeed. We hardly had any contract initially，only about one or two projects every year， which were basically designing houses for the people we knewof. The first client was Professor Toshio Ojima28， who was in charge of the equipment design at the Kikutake Architects，with a specialty in designing theheating and cooling systems. As I visited Professor Ojima’s lab quite frequently，he promised to be my first client if I started my own business. So，when Idid start my practice，Professor Ojima asked me to design his house. He was really caring about me.
Z：SO TO SPEAK，IT WAS REALLY DIFFICULT TO START UP AN ARCHITECTURAL BUSINESS DURING THAT TIME，WASN’T IT？
ITO：Definitely. It was the early 1970s，when the oil crisis hit hard. It was a very difficult time.
FURUICHI：It may be the most difficult time ever.
伊东∶1960 年代景气起来。可是以70 年为分界，一下子就掉了下来。那是个大家都抢购厕纸、前途一片黑暗的时代，有的只是时间，整天闲着。那时的朋友，和石山修武，还有石井和纮 等开始有了交往。
ITO：The economy was booming in the 1960s. However，after 1970，which was like a dividing line，everything collapsed all of a sudden. That was an erawhen everyone was panic buying toilet papers and everything in the future was in dark. What we only had was time，with nothing to do. It was during thattime when I started to become close with Osamu Ishiyama]29] and Kazuhiro Ishii and others.
FURUICHI： These were the people who are the so-called Nobushi Generation31.
ITO： That’s right. We and a group of friends， such as Yuzuku Tominaga32， often gathered together. As we could not afford to drink at the bars， we oftenbought liquors from the store and drank together in the office till the next morning.
FURUICHI： TO MOST OF US， THE FIRST IMPRESSIVE HOUSE YOU DESIGNED MUST BE THE WHITE U . WHEN WAS THAT PROJECT？
伊东∶ 1976 年。这项目实际上是我姐姐的家。我的这个姐姐，他们夫妻和两个小女儿，本来住在东京的公寓中，姐夫因为癌症突然去世，于是姐姐卖了公寓，刚好我所住的中野的家正后方的地皮在出卖，话说着说着成了干脆搬到那造个新家吧，结果我就做了那个设计。姐姐从事音乐这行，艺术上的爱好在有些地方比我还高，在和她边沟通边设计的过程中，形成了在封闭的管状体中投射进光线那样的、地下般的建筑。
ITO： In 1976. That project was actually my sister’s house. She used to live with her husband and their two daughters in an apartment in Tokyo. Her husbanddied of cancer unexpectedly， so she sold the apartment. Coincidently， a piece of land was put up for sale right behind my house in Nakano at that time.When I talked about it with my sister， she decided to buy it and build a new house， and I became the designer. My sister was a musician， so she was actuallymore passionate for artistic stuff than I was in some aspects. During the design process， I constantly exchanged ideas with her and finally came up with theidea of making the building shaped like an underground facility， allowing light to shed into closed tubing areas.
FURUICHI： To that extent， this building in some way also reflected what your sister imagined and requested， didn’t it？
ITO： It ended up completely different from what she expected actually. During our discussion on the design， we often started with asking what about this，what about that， and then we were like， if we were going to do it this way， why not doing it that way. Eventually， the design was gradually getting closer andcloser towards aesthetic space. At that time， her husband just passed away unexpectedly and her kids were still young. She must have a strong will that thethree of them left behind ought to live on together as a happy family.
FURUICHI： The space is like a giant room in which every room is inter-connected， isn’t it？
ITO： Yes. It became very introvertive space.
Furuichi： I remember that design very well. It was the first New Year after I joined Mr. Tange’s firm. I paid a New Year’s visit to Mr. Tange and ran into Mr.Isozaki there. As we were chitchatting， Mr. Tange asked if there were any emerging young architects recently. Mr. Isozaki told him that Toyo Ito was quiteattention-grabbing. When Mr. Tange later asked about Mr. Ito’s works， Mr. Isozaki mentioned the Silver Hut and the White U. Mr. Isozaki even did a sketch ofthe White U for illustration， so I had a very strong impression about this design.
Suwa District is under the jurisdiction of Nagano Prefecture where Toyo Ito‘s father was born. In someAsian countries such as China and Japan， father’s place of birth isconsidered as where a person is originally from. Therefore， Toyo Ito thinks himself as originally from Nagano.
