Kisho Kurokawa : Selected and Current Works

Kisho Kurokawa : Selected and Current Works
ArcaEdizioni | English & Chinese | February 25, 2002 | ISBN: N/A | PDF | 218 pages | 128 MB

Kisho Kurokawa has always aimed to create an architecture of, what he calls, 'the age of life' principle, which employs the concepts and vocabularies of life systems, biology and ecology. Simultaneously, his intention when designing a structure is to address how cultural identity can be incorporated into contemporary architecture so that people everywhere will understand it. These two demanding challenges do indeed breathe life and bring meaning to his varied and distinctive portfolio of work, a selection of which is featured in this book.
