Yuri Uno is a co-principal of Naka Architects’ Studio. Yuri creates spaces that allow living with nature. She is interested not only in enjoying the richness of nature, but also in creating architecture with an intermediate space where the inside and outside spaces are mixed, expressing the idea that human beings are a part of nature. Some of these integrated works include the use of rain circulation and solar energy to create an open yet pleasant climate.
After graduating from the University of Tokyo Graduate School, Yuri worked at architectural firm Nihon Sekkei, until she joined Naka Architects’ Studio in 2013.
