Being autistic means that a person has a special personality, which is their greatest strength. I aim to design ”Serendipity Lab,” not to give people with autism a world, but to create a world with them. An overall atmosphere is formed by applying low saturation colors, so as not to disturb their learning or activities. The key materials create an open and warm environment. This Lab welcomes users of all abilities as they encounter multi-sensory designs, and meet exploratory opportunities for experience, observation, and practice.

ASD(自閉スペクトラム症、アスペルガー症候群)やその他の認知障害をもつ若者のための療育センターをデザインしました。Kerry Mayoの"Autism Can't Define Me; I Define Autism."という言葉を引用し、ASDは唯一無二な特別な個性であり、ユーザーとなる若者の自立的な生活を支援する環境づくりを意識しました。ASDに関するインタビューやリサーチをもとに施設内で使用された色相や彩度、マテリアルなどは選定されました。
