Emmanuelle Moureaux

Aloha Everyone,

Emmanuelle Moureaux is a French architect and interior designer, who lives and works in Japan. On her first trip to Japan, she fell in love with its art and culture. After graduating, Emmanuelle moved to Japan. She quickly found out that in order for her to work as an architect & interior designer, she first had to learn Japanese. That was 1996.

Her first major assignment was to do architectural and interior design for a bank. Emmanuel brought whimsical design and bright colors inspired by traditional Japanese art to normally conservative bank building. Her use of colors and design was fun and happy and it was a big success. Emmanuelle's latest project is the subway system in Taipei,Taiwan.

J.J. and I are looking forward to seeing Emmanuelle's work of the bank building when we visit Japan.
