Takanori Aiba was born in 1953 in Yokohama, Japan. He built his first career as a freelance maze illustrator in 1978. His maze works were serialized in “POPYE”, a Japanese fashion magazine for 10 years. From then he founded his own company, "Graphics and Designing Inc.", in 1981. If you explore any small part of Aiba's works, you find amazing stories and some unique characters. Murakami, who makes Aiba's models, is also a civil engineer. He is the realist of the duo. As a pair they create these beautifully intricate buildings which make the viewers circle around them endlessly. You can find them at their website.
