Emmanuelle Moureaux

EMMANUELLE MOUREAUX is a French architect and designer based in Tokyo. Inspired by Japanese traditional sliding screens, Moureaux has created the concept of ‘Shikiri’ which literally means dividing and creating space in colors. She uses colors as three-dimensional elements, like layers, in order to create spaces. She designs a wide range of projects, architecture, interior, furniture, product, exhibition, by using her unique technique of color scheming and handling colors as space makers. Moureaux is Associate Professor at the Tohoku University of Art & Design; recent awards include the International Architecture Award and Architizer A+ Award for the Sugamo Shinkin Bank; other recent projects include ‘See Beyond Colors’ for the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale and ‘100 Colors Tokyo’ for the Shinjuku Creators Festa 2013.
