Mamako Tanijiri thinks that it is important to keep looking for something new as an architect. He defines his work as a chance to realize fresh ideas about buildings and relationships of all interactive elements. It is a pleasure for Tanijiri to detect new potentials of architecture. He also understands that this could only be achieved when he himself gives equal importance to all buildings, irrespective of scale and cost, be it dog houses or skyscrapers.
The architect sometimes feels that society is dismissive of accepting modern ideas, and that is why, he wants to explore something new but also familiar to human life. For example, people would appreciate an apple just falling off a tree more than the one in pink or purple, which they've never seen before. Tanijiri believes that he could find the answer in daily life with having fresh eyes judging from different perspectives. The architect never doubts that the reason people always want "new" is because they have a strong desire of making better environment without being satisfied with the present condition. With the aspiration to enhance the human environment, Makoto Tanijiri is contributing "new architecture" in seeking its answers to ordinary life.
