Yoshio Kato is a Japanese architect, writer and professor of architecture. Kato is a pioneer of Japanese sustainable architecture specializing in architectonic micro climates and bio climatical architecture. Yoshio Kato’s houses are almost laboratories, where the prevailing weather conditions are examined to the very details and no artificial air conditioning or other energy consumption is allowed. Professor Kato is a walking laboratory himself, pockets and car full of sensors ready to document the weather conditions when ever, where ever. For the Future Pavilion Kato produced an exhibition of his realized works.
"In the Future architecture will be designed by writers."
