Arata Isozaki by Arata Isozaki

Book Description

Arata Isozaki (b.1931) is one of the most important and influential Japanese architects working today. Since opening his practice in 1963, he has built extensively in Japan, Europe, the United States and more recently China. Through his work, both as an architect and theorist, Isozaki has acted as a bridge between the East and the West, exporting Japanese architecture and introducing Western trends into Japan. This book presents a selection of his vast oeuvre in six thematic chapters, conceived by Arata Isozaki himself together with Ken Tadashi Oshima. These chapters follow the principles of Isozaki's instructive theorization of architecture and his own architectural works. Each chapter is introduced by Ken Tadashi Oshima, and this is followed by a conceptual essay by Isozaki. Projects are then presented in depth accompanied by a wealth of illustrations from the Isozaki Office Archive, including sketches, silkscreens, drawings, photographs and models.
