Kazuo Shinohara: On the Threshold of Space-Making

AUTHOR: Kazuo Shinohara   Seng Kuan

One of the greatest and most influential architects of Japan's postwar generation, Kazuo Shinohara (1925-2006) has remained virtually unknown outside the small community of his 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--to give an almost oceanic spaciousness through abstraction. The underlying formalism in Shinohara's architecture, its basic explorations of geometry and colour, 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 Hitherto unpublished archival drawings and personal travel photographs by Shinohara complement the essays. 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.
