              Working for a company that developed washi products, Eriko Horiki witnessed the dying traditions of the industry Without experience in art, design, or running a business, she decided to start a studio devoted to modernizing the use of Japanese washi paper An interview with noted ...architect Toyo Ito describes how an early collaboration between the two led to the innovative forms and patterns her work is known for The first special issue devoted to interiors commemorates Eriko Horiki's 20 years working with traditional Japanese washi paper. When making a career change and starting her company, Horiki had no experience in art, design, or running a business. Witnessing the dying traditions of the washi industry, she felt compelled to learn the process and made it her mission to reverse the trend. Traveling to Fukui, which is the center of papermaking in Japan, Horiki learned the painstaking process of hand making washi. In turn she developed new methods modernizing the process, resulting in two patents. The studio can create single sheets 16m in length, which can require a whole month to complete. Horiki pushed the use of washi beyond a craft material and searched for new applications in architecture. This led to a focus on light, transparency, and structure, leading to innovative forms. Her work for Disney, Yo-Yo Ma's stage art, and large scale exhibitions took washi to previously unseen venues and applications. Text in English and Japanese. .

Pei, one of the giants of modern architecture, is featured in the first of a new series that will deliver a new perspective on 20th-century architecture through interviews in which prominent architects look back on their careers. He talks with Fumihiko Maki about memorable people and projects from a career that has spanned more than half a century. Included are descriptions of his encounters with Walter Gropius and Alvar Aalto, which convey the high esteem he held of these eminent architects as teachers and friends. Tracing his career in 3 parts, a chronological list of his works from 1950-2008 is also included. Evident throughout is Pei's warmly human approach to architecture, which transcends the framework of academic or professional relationships and values above all the satisfaction of working with valued associates toward common goals. Text in English and Japanese.
