Kazuo Shinohara by Seng Kuan Pdf

One of the greatest and most influential architects of Japan's postwar generation, Shinohara Kazuo (1925-2006) has remained virtually unknown outside the small community of devoted followers. As one of the leaders of architectural movement Metabolism, Shinohara achieved cult- figure stature with sublimely beautiful, purist houses that break away from Japan's postwar suburban architecture.Perhaps the most iconic of Shinohara's works, House of White (1964-66), rearranges a familiar design palette: a square plan, a pointed roof, white walls, and a symbolic heart pillar-to give the almost oceanic spaciousness through abstraction. The underlying formalism in Shinohara's architecture-its basic explorations of geometry and color-lends his work a poetic quality that fuses simplicity and surprise, the ordered and the unexpected.This volume brings together new scholarship from the foremost specialists on Shinohara and Japan's modern architecture. New perspectives and historical frameworks range from the development of the small house as a building type in postwar Japan to Shinohara's engagement with French critical theory.Hitherto unpublished archival drawings and personal travel photographs by Shinohara complement the essays. AUTHOR: Seng Kuan holds a PhD in architectural history from Harvard University and teaches at Harvard Graduate School of Design and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. SELLING POINTS: * Kazuo Shinohara (1925-2006) was a Japanese architect who developed a cult following for his purist houses. He helped develop the architectural movement, Metabolism which is characterized by pure white spaces and megastructures. One of his most well known buildings is House of White. * This book brings together new scholarship from the foremost specialists on Shinohara. * This book deals with Japanese modern architecture which is very influential around the world. * This volume includes previously unpublished archival drawings and personal travel photographs of Shinohara.

Place, Time, and Being in Japanese Architecture by Kevin Nute Pdf

"In addition to highlighting the human benefits of built environments which relate to particular place, time and being, many of the Japanese buildings examined illustrate practical strategies for revealing these universal parameters which are equally applicable beyond Japan. It is suggested that wider use of some of these approaches could not only help to sustain both environmental and cultural identities against the homogenising effects of globalisation, but also has the potential to heighten our appreciation of the peculiar condition of being here now."--Jacket.

Kenzo Tange by Seng Kuan,Yukio Lippit Pdf

Kenzo Tange (1913-2005) is a peerless figure among twentieth-century Japanese architects, unmatched in his talent, influence, and versatility. A leading force of the Metabolist movement, he was the first non-Western architect whose works would be embraced as universal in value. This unique assemblage of new scholarship by an international team of experts reframes Tange according to the contingencies of Japanese modernism as well as contemporary discourses of cultural identity, technology, urbanization, and the synthesis of the arts. Case studies on celebrated works-Hiroshima, Tokyo Bay Plan, and Yoyogi Stadiums-clarify Tange's wide-ranging interests and design methodology. Illustrated with archival drawings and period photographs, this volume provides fresh and compelling perspectives on the practices, discourses, and production contexts of Tange's work as well as the architecture and urbanism of postwar Japan. Kenzo Tange-Architecture for the World represents the most serious and comprehensive reassessment of Tange in the English language in decades.

Kazuo Shinohara by David Stewart,Kazuo Shinohara,Tomio Ōhashi Pdf

Shinohara, arguably Japan's most original architect, was born in 1925 and comes from a mathematical background. He was trained at Tokyo Institute of Technology, the national polytechnic university (resembling ETH in Zurich); he also taught in the Department of Engineering for some thirty years. One of the substantial figures of late twentieth-century design, he possesses the sensibility of both a Voysey and a Lautreamont. Well known for his residential work, Shinohara has more recently turned his hand to larger buildings, notably the Centennial Hall of Tokyo Institute of Technology, which serves as a club and meeting facility for the alumni and faculty. A work of imposing appearance, Centennial Hall has nonetheless mystified many Japanese observers, who see in it a giant robotic figure towering over the urban landscape. While notions of technology are certainly implied in the design -- the structure could not have been calculated without a computerized matrix of 3180 simultaneous equations-- nothing was farther from the architect's intention than a simple High-Tech emblem, or popular icon.On the contrary, this book portrays Centennial Hall as the culmination of three successive architectural concepts or styles, the product of Shinohara's career as a teacher and hands-on designer during the course of Japan's unbelievably rapid postwar growth. Thus Centennial Hall looks toward what Shinohara speaks of as a fourth space -- with reference to both the F 14 A Tomcat fighter plane and the Apollo 11 moon-landing craft. But just as this work was not intended to evoke comic-book style robots, neither does it seek to embody American-style technology for its own sake.

The Architecture of Tokyo by Hiroshi Watanabe Pdf

The Tokyo region is the most populous metropolitan area in the world and a place of extraordinary vitality. The political, economic and cultural center of Japan, Tokyo also exerts an enormous international influence. In fact the region has been pivotal to the nation's affairs for centuries. Its sheer size, its concentration of resources and institutions and its long history have produced buildings of many different types from many different eras. This is the first guide to introduce in one volume the architecture of the Tokyo region, encompassing Tokyo proper and adjacent prefectures, in all its remarkable variety. The buildings are presented chronologically and grouped into six periods: the medieval period (1185-1600), the Edo period (1600-1868), the Meiji period (1868-1912), the Taisho and early Showa period (1912-1945), the post-war reconstruction period (1945-1970) and the contemporary period (1970 until today). This comprehensive coverage permits those interested in Japanese architecture or culture to focus on a particular era or to examine buildings within a larger temporal framework. A concise discussion of the history of the region and the architecture of Japan develops a context within which the individual works may be viewed. Over 500 buildings are presented, from 15th-century Buddhist temples to 20th-century cultural buildings, from venerable folkhouses to works by leading contemporary architects of Japan such as Kenzo Tange, Fumihiko Maki, Arata Isozaki, Hiroshi Hara, Toyo Ito and Riken Yamamoto as well as by foreign architects such as Norman Foster, Peter Eisenman and Steven Holl.

Allure of the Incomplete, Imperfect, and Impermanent by Rumiko Handa Pdf

Architects have long operated based on the assumption that a building is 'complete' once construction has finished. Striving to create a perfect building, they wish for it to stay in its original state indefinitely, viewing any subsequent alterations as unintended effects or the results of degeneration. The ideal is for a piece of architecture to remain permanently perfect and complete. This contrasts sharply with reality where changes take place as people move in, requirements change, events happen, and building materials are subject to wear and tear. Rumiko Handa argues it is time to correct this imbalance. Using examples ranging from the Roman Coliseum to Japanese tea rooms, she draws attention to an area that is usually ignored: the allure of incomplete, imperfect and impermanent architecture. By focusing on what happens to buildings after they are ‘complete’, she shows that the ‘afterlife’ is in fact the very ‘life’ of a building. However, the book goes beyond theoretical debate. Addressing professionals as well as architecture students and educators, it persuades architects of the necessity to anticipate possible future changes and to incorporate these into their original designs.

Contemporary Japanese Architecture by James Steele Pdf

Contemporary Japanese Architecture presents a clear and comprehensive overview of the historical and cultural framework that informs the work of all Japanese architects, as an introduction to an in-depth investigation of the challenges now occupying the contemporary designers who will be the leaders of the next generation. It separates out the young generation of Japanese architects from the crowded, distinguished, multi-generational field they seek to join, and investigates the topics that absorb them, and the critical issues they face within the new economic reality of Japan and a shifting global order. Salient points in the text are illustrated by beautiful, descriptive images provided by the architects and from the extensive collection of the author. By combining illustrations with timelines and graphics to explain complex ideas, the book is accessible to any student seeking to understand contemporary Japanese architecture.
