INTEGRATED DESIGN ASSOCIATESIntroduction



Integrated Design Associates (I.D.A.) is an architectural design organization established as a place for creating new architectural concepts. Based in Tokyo and Hong Kong, it was established by Yasuyori Yada and Winston Shu, who were classmates at Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. Our Tokyo office members are mainly former staff of the architect, ARATA ISOZAKI, and our Hong Kong office members are mainly former staff of the architect, NORMAN FOSTER. Currently both offices, based in Tokyo and Hong Kong, aim to work in active collaboration globaly on various architectural projects in Japan, China, Hong Kong, India, Europe, U.S., etc.

Our Tokyo Office, including our long experience at Arata Isozaki & Associates, have mainly worked on public facilities including art galleries, schools, museums, concert halls, convention halls etc, and we are also experienced in various fields from commercial to residential facilities. Our Hong Kong Office, including our long experience at Norman Foster and Partners, have worked on large-scale public facilities such as airports, train stations etc., and recently both offices are engaged in research and practice of reducing the environmental impact of buildings.
