Hi everyone,

I was wondering if I could get some help from some architects or students of architecture...

I'm planning on getting my girlfriend (a grad student in architecture) a gift from Japan when I go there in a couple weeks time. I want to get her a tool that she can use in her field and also will last her for a very long time. I understand that the pen/fine marker and sketchbook are probably the most important tools for an architect so I was wondering if there were any specific brands known for their quality/craftsmanship that I could purchase in Japan or are exclusive to Japan?

Thanks!

The most important tool for Japanese architects is the can of white spray paint.

"Soooo, you're an architect too?"....
I've read it in print and I recall it being 'tossed' around the office. I'm thinking it was Hugh (Hardy) and Malcolm (Holzman). And I'm recalling it being a men's room in the NYC Subway.

HHPA was actually an enjoyable place to work in the late 70s and early 80s. The staff was fantastic. That said, I don't really miss it.

Beg to disagree, it's an order form for bronze coloured anodized aluminium.
