Since the turn of the century our relationship to technology has changed; we use technology to make ourselves feel more "human," according to Takaharu Tezuka, who with Yui Tezuka is principal of Tezuka Architects in Tokyo. The results may be seen in the firm's architecture projects, which make frank but delicate use of structural principles, each different from the others yet all deliberate and somehow intimate, regardless of scale. The House Without Walls (2000), Floating Roof House (2004), Fuji Kindergarten (2007), and Ring Around a Tree (2011) are among the most widely publicized examples to date.
