Taiyo Watanabe is an architectural photographer and designer born and based in Los Angeles, California.

A graduate from the Southern California Institute of Architecture, his interest in photography began while studying abroad in Switzerland. As an architectural designer, Taiyo has the unique benefit of understanding spatial and material qualities captured within the frame of the camera.

In addition to his career as a designer, Taiyo has been steadily expanding his architectural photography portfolio to capture the works of other locally and internationally based architects. His photographs have been featured in publications such as Architect, Architectural Record, CLOG, HYPEBEAST, Log, Taschen books and others.

TAIYO WATANABE is a collection of his commissioned and personal projects in architectural photography. His work is an exploration in the fluid boundaries of building, space and context seen through a uniquely Californian sensibility.
