Kotoaki Asano

"Promenade of the Wind"



I am an architect, an artist, a designer and a poet. The spaces designed by me includes many spaces suggested by poetic sensitivity. I think that I must show everybody the new vision of the world clearly sensuously.
I have created spatial works and installations in various places. I have received revelation from each place and have made my works. When I am invited, I would like to create a new installation suitable for the place.
