Summary
"'A Japanese Constellation' showcases a group of contemporary architects who work in Japan but whose influence extends throughout the world. This book, published in conjunction with the first exhibition to feature three generations of practitioners orbiting Pritzker Architecture Prize laureates Toyo Ito and SANAA, moves beyond the limited framework of the architectural "star system" to illuminate how shared themes may spawn cross-generational lines of descent and influence. Highlighting forty-four designs realized since the year 2001, the volume reveals how structural invention, ceaseless experimentation, nonhierarchical thinking, and novel uses of transparency and lightness inform and strengthen the identity of linked local practices, even as their impact is global. With 336 illustrations as well as essays by Perdo Gadanho, Terunobu Fujimori, Taro Igarashi, and Julian Worrall."--Dust jacket.
