Not only is there a keen critical sense in all of Mr. Furuya's architectural work, but beyond that, there is something relaxing to the spirit. It is undoubtedly owing to his personal character that, even though the designs are blessed with refinement, there is nothing unapproachable about his buildings. This is well expressed in his own words: 'Through imagining different localities, different lifestyles, and different ways of thinking as fully as possible, the ideas of an architect emerge.'
