Jun Sakaguchi was born in London and spent his life not only in London but in Tokyo, Osaka and Sydney.
Jun studied architecture and urban design at Waseda University to complete bachelor degree and master degree and worked for GA Gallery and Sakakura Associates during his time at university.
He started to work at Fujita Corporation in 1995 which gave him extensive experiences from construction site supervision, concept design, design development, construction documentation, contract administration to interior design. There he became registered as 1st class certified architect Japan in 1997.
He decided to move to Australia in 2001 and started his career at PTW Architects. There he worked on diverse projects that range from architectural/interior concept design, design development and master planning to construction documentation and contract administration. He then became registered as an architect in NSW in 2005 and was promoted to Practice Director at PTW in 2007. He has worked on projects in Australia, Japan, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam and Middle-East.
He left PTW in 2012 and started as an associate at Nettleton Tribe which is an emerging architectural firm in Sydney and Jun is introducing diverse projects to this firm. Jun's career and wide range of contacts gave him opportunities to work on even more diverse projects. These include teaching for urban design workshop at UNSW, jury at Sydney University, coordination and teaching for design workshop at Sydney University for Sugiyama University from Japan, interpreting for Toyo Ito at AIA International Speaker Series in Sydney and Melbourne in 2009 and designing/constructing teahouse at RMIT at Melbourne Arts Festival in 2009 with Terunobu Fujimori.
He organised 'Emergency Shelter Exhibition' at Customs House in Sydney in September 2011 which was very successful with more than 700 people joining at the launch party. He organised the exhibitions at King George Square in Brisbane which was held in July 2012 and at Federation Square Melbourne in May 2013.
Jun loves finding clues from nature for his design and applying simple but algorithmic pattern to the design theory.
