SYUKO KATO WESTBY
Syuko enjoys the practice of architecture as a process of realising the potential of site, which respect in its historical and environmental context, exploring possibilities and encouraging interactivity among people, the natural and built environments. She believes that integrating this changing environment in design will bring urban landscape to life. She takes inspiration from a cross-disciplinary approach drawing on work in other fields including dance and choreography. Her research into interactivity and performance in architecture has been published in the reports of the international conference ‘Architecture InPlay’ in Portugal in 2016 and subsequently published in a Nexus Network Journal in 2017.
Syuko is a registered architect in Japan and hold a UK master degree. During 12 years of professional experience working in UK, France, and Japan, she led residential, commercial, and public building projects. Since moving her base to London in 2011, she worked on international projects in an award winning office before starting her own practice, working on a retreat centre in France. More recently with her experience across a range of project scales and types, she has been working on two major masterplans project in London and York, developing urban design strategies.
