APOLLO Architects & Associates
The name "Apollo" originates from Apollon, god of sun and light in Greco-Roman mythology. The firm was named in 2000 with the hope of pursuing architecture composed of the simple materials of "light" and "shadow", while also aiming to become a luminous presence within the city and society. Architecture needs to be safe and functional, but it also needs to go beyond that. What we aim to do in addition to those basic requirements is to induce a rich spirituality within the space. Daily life, which is composed of the accumulation of simple and trivial events, requires an enduring continuity. Architectural spaces therefore need to provide a certain “leeway” for enjoying the mundane flow of time in order to encompass moments of comfort as well as thrilling emotion.
