Takefumi Aida is a Japanese architect and theorist. He questioned the tenets of the Modern Movement relating to form and function. He is mostly known for his designs of so-called ‘Toy Block’ houses, composed of simple block-like elements. 

Aida is a founder-member of the counter-Metabolist group ArchiteXt (1971), which was opposed to the incipient totalitarianism of Modernism (and especially Metabolism), the group (based on the journal of the same name) promoted contradiction, discontinuity, individualism, and pluralism.
