With traditional Japanese carpentry on the decline, young architect Akiyoshi Koki is rejuvenating age-old construction approaches through digital fabrication technology like laser cutting and 3D printing. From award-winning reimaginings of traditional homes, to the promotion of local timber production and consumption cycles using digital equipment, and unique online platforms for ordering pre-cut furniture and even homes, he is breathing new life into both the construction and forestry sectors.
