Publisher Toto
ISBN 9784887063587

The official catalogue for the Japan Pavilion of the 15th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice. With the theme of ‘en’ (fate), the book focuses on the works of twelve young architects who have broken away from Japan’s modern architectural conventions. The works by Koji Aoki, dot architects, Mio Tsuneyama, 403architecture, and more pursue new relationships that are deeply connected with recent social conditions in Japan, such as the relationships between people, between people and goods, and between people and the environment.

 

The book will available at Idea Books.
