This book is inspired me in two ways, first it’s written by a Japanese writer about Japanese culture and secondly it talks about one of my biggest passions, running. In 2008 I had the opportunity to immers myself for one year into Japanese culture when I studied Architecture at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. The Japanese culture and architecture has inspired me in many ways. It was also the year that I got introduced to the writer Haruki Murakami. Besides being a Japanese writer, Haruki Murakami loves running and his book ‘what I talk about when I talk about running’ is my favourite book. I run both long and short distance, but no matter how long I run, it always allow me to restructure my mind and thinking which benefits my professional career as an architect.


The first time I experienced a James Turrell artwork was when I was living in Beijing. I visited ‘Gathered Sky’ an artwork that allows you to lay on your back on the floor of an art space and look up through a square open hole in the ceiling during sunset. During a period of 2 hours you experience the changing of the blue day sky to the dark black night sky. It was a wonderful experience and ever since I have visited multiple powerful spatial art works and installations designed by James Turrell all over the world.
