An architect with fluency in Japanese, English and the language of design, Hiroyuki Yoshikawa has delivered a large number of successful projects in Japan with international clients, comprising law firms, IT companies, corporate banking offices and call centers.

Yoshikawa began his career with Sei Kimura, followed by three years at management level with the Richard Rogers Partnership Japan. He then joined Benjamin Warner upon the founding of CDI Aoyama Studio, serving as the Studio director for over a decade.

Yoshikawa was key to the successful implementation of all CDI projects, including such Tokyo landmarks as the V28 Harajuku building and the Iceberg (Audi Forum Tokyo).
