Sponsored by bathroom appliance maker Toto, Gallery Ma holds some of the city’s best modern and contemporary architecture shows. This winter's special highlights Kyoto University professor Waro Kishi, whose architectural bonds with the ancient capital run deep. With designs including the Wakuden ryotei restaurant, hotels and several private houses, Kishi has made his mark in Kyoto, and now sheds light on how his process of combining Western modernism with traditional Japanese architecture has worked in the city.
