TOO MUCH Magazine #10 : Schemata Architects — Pluralistic Spaces

TOO MUCH Magazine proudly presents its 10th issue, exploring the
innovative work of Schemata Architects, a Tokyo-based practice
founded by Jo Nagasaka in 1998. Nagasaka introduces the concept
of “pluralistic architecture,” emphasizing adaptable spaces shaped by
diverse perspectives, challenging traditional notions. This milestone
issue delves into Schemata’s projects, past and present, showcasing
how their pluralistic philosophy transforms existing spaces.

TOO MUCH Magazine, a dedicated platform for exploring the intersection of city experiences and human landscapes,
proudly presents its 10th issue, delving into the idiosyncratic oeuvre of Schemata Architects. Founded in 1998 by Japanese architect Jo Nagasaka, Schemata is a Tokyobased practice renowned for its innovative approach to architecture, interior design and furniture design.

In the preceding edition of TOO MUCH, our readers discovered the ingenious adaptations of vernacular Japanese architecture by the burgeoning Muslim population. The minimalist yet impactful repurposing of spaces as improvised places of worship set the stage
for our exploration of Schemata’s unique ethos in this milestone 10th issue.

Jo Nagasaka, the creative force behind Schemata Architects, introduces the concept of “pluralistic architecture,” emphasizing spaces continually shaped by diverse perspectives. Nagasaka’s
deliberate embrace of open-ended designs allows for adaptation and even “misuse” of spaces, challenging traditional notions of architecture with a capital A.

This issue invites readers on a captivating tour of Schemata’s projects,
both past and present, examining how Nagasaka’s pluralistic philosophy transforms preexisting spaces. The essence of “semiarchitecture,” as manifested in Schemata’s intentionally understated works, starkly contrasts conventional architectural norms.

Through the lens of our ongoing series “Work,” this volume provides
the second installment, focusing on how individuals, in this case, Schemata Architects, dynamically transform landscapes through innovative use of biological, psychological, and social resources. The Issue encourages readers to reconsider their perception of architecture
and design, offering a romanticized perspective that navigates toward a fresh, immersive experience of space.
