Taeg Nishimoto

Japanese architect, designer and educator Taeg Nishimoto has a decades-long career that has taken him from Tokyo to the US. After obtaining his Bachelor degree in architecture at the Waseda University in Tokyo, he completed a Master of Architecture at the prestigious Cornell University. From 1987 to 2001 he practiced in New York in his own studio, Taeg Nishimoto + Allied Architects, and taught at the Columbia University, Pratt Institute, and Temple University. His design and architecture work has been exhibited internationally and in various publications. Interior Design magazine named his “Liquid” series of wall mirrors Best of Year 2017 in the product/accessories category, while the “PLOT House” series is currently in the permanent collection of FRAC Centre in Orleans, France. A licensed architect in Japan and in the state of New York, Taeg Nishimoto has been a full Professor of Architecture in the College of Architecture, Construction Science and Planning at The University of Texas since 2007. He currently lives in San Antonio, Texas. His approach to design objects is interesting: interlocking constructions, wrinkled surfaces, irregular structures, are just some of the most fascinating aspects of a (above all) material research that ranges from polyester to recycled paper, from bark to heat-responsive PETG (Polyethylene Terephtalate Glycol).
