Cutwork I Together has Changed : We are an Architecture and Design studio focused on new ways to live and work. We founded in 2016 because the way we actually live and work has radically changed in the past 20 years, and today we need to rethink the way we design our spaces and objects.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/ individuals have been involved?

We design across a large scale of projects:

- Architecture
- Interior
- Furniture

Key Cutwork projects:

Station F
Cortex Shelter
Cohabitation Unit
TedX I Password: togetherhaschanged

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

It is not only about building structures, walls, floors and roofs, but also about what happens between the people living in the spaces.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

We don’t do a lot of competitions. This Birdhome competition is actually the only one we have done in the past two years. We have applied for a very specific reason: one of the founder of Cutwork (Antonin Yuji Maeno) is a bird watcher since he is 8 years old, and has always dreamt of designing a bird home; this was the occasion!
