Kazuo Shinohara: on the threshold of space-making

CAD 67.50

Kazuo Shinohara (1925–2006) is one of the most influential architects of Japan's postwar generation. Shinohare himself divided his creative work into four styles. In placing his later, institutional scale works of his fourth style, which have been overlooked until now, alongside the iconic houses of his earlier career, this book establishes the architect’s insistence on the equivalation between the house and the city. New scholarly essays, interviews with clients and collaborators, and translations of Shinohara’s key texts are complemented by previously unpublished archival drawings and personal travel photographs by Shinohara. The volume reframes his architectural achievements in terms of his oeuvre as a whole and situates them in the broader cultural and social context in Japan and globally.
