The scope of work ranges from identities and environmental design, such as exhibition and architectural design, the design of a wide variety of books and publications and other printed matter, to time-based media.

He is also pursuing research projects, such as one on design and architectural strategies for a re-positioning of the Public Library as public space and institution. These research projects have been repeatedly supported by awarded grants, the latest by the Daiwa Foundation to investigate alternative design schemes and communication approaches for the arts and cultural sector in Japan.
