Yoshichika Takagi is a young Japanese architect, he was born in 1975 in Sapporo, on the island of Hokkaido, Japan. He graduated from Hokkai-Gakuen University in 1998. Takagi attended the Architectural Association School of Architecture between 2000 and 2001. In the period 2005 - 2012 he worked at Sekkei-sha inc. and 4 years in the Norisada Maeda workshop.

In 2010, Takagi received the 2010 RUNNER-UP AR Prize for Emerging Architecture (UK). Finally in 2012 he founded "Yoshichika takagi + associates". Today, Yoshichika is also a part-time professor at Hokkai-Gakuen University and the Hokkaido Institute of Technology.

Until now Takagi has mainly dealt with residential architecture, even with works of an experimental nature. In these, a remarkable sensitivity emerges, both in terms of the functional management of the space and the harmony of the whole. The essentiality of the background and the use of light colored materials are appreciated in his projects.
