When I was commissioned for the design of the Children‘s Wall at Budokan, I was very excited by the opportunity to visually explore the thematic implications of the project, and the many design possibilities therein, especially since I already had such a deeply personal relationship with the topics and cultures at hand. My goal with the design was to convey the sense of playfulness and magic inherent in being a child on a playground, and to connect that to the wonder and delight kindled by cross-cultural exchange and appreciation, as well as taking pride and pleasure in one’s own cultural heritage.
