Japan-ness in architecture by Arata Isozaki( Book )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Combining historical survey, critical analysis, theoretical reflection, and autobiographical account, these essays, written over a period of twenty years, demonstrate Isozaki's standing as one of the world's leading architects and preeminent architectural thinkers."--Jacket
Antonio Gaudí by Hiroshi Teshigahara( Visual )

2 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in Japanese and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everything comes from the great book of Nature; human attainments are an already printed book."--Gaudi, end title screen. The Catalan architect, ceramist, and sculptor united Neo-Gothic mysticism and grandeur with Art Nouveau lines, combined with a surreal apprehension of the power of nature. Less of a documentary than a tribute, Teshigahara's film becomes a place to get lost, a radically hypnotic travelogue that's completely symbiotic with its subject. Almost wordless, this visual rhapsody is accompanied by music from composer Toru Takemitsu, whose free-floating East-meets-West impressionism and organic flow mimics the sprouting curvilinear shapes of Gaudi's buildings
Yasuhiro Ishimoto : a tale of two cities by Colin Westerbeck( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Large as is the range of Ishimoto's tale of two cities, in recent years another side of his sensibility has come to the fore in very subtle studies of rotting leaves, footprints in snow, cloud formations, and wind-ruffled water at his feet. Now 77, Ishimoto is revealing a meditative dimension that has brought him recognition as a "Person of Cultural Distinction" in Japan and serious regard worldwide for his artistic achievements

The contemporary tea house : Japan's top architects redefine a tradition by Arata Isozaki( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tea house is one of Japan's most original and significant architectural forms - a small, simple space for the tea ceremony that traditionally requires a hearth, straw-mat flooring, and a low entrance. It has been called the spiritual fountainhead of modern Japanese architecture." "The Contemporary Tea House features twenty works that reveal how world-renowned Japanese architects are redefining this highly formalized and tradition-bound form using materials as disparate as charcoal, plastic, and titanium." "Directed at both the general reader and the specialist, this visually stunning book explores the works of five masters of modern Japanese architecture. The informative text is illuminated with photographs, and numerous diagrams and sketches."--Jacket
The Museum of Modern Art, Gunma : Arata Isozaki by Philip Drew( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arata Isozaki is one of the most profilic and creative personalities in contemporary architecture. The Museum of Modern Art, Gunma, arguably the architect's masterwork, was the first in a line of commissions for modern art museums on a world-wide scale. Completed in 1974 it was recently extended by Isozaki in 1994. The museum is located in the rural surroundings of the Gunma-no-Mori park, and is the most complete realization by Isozaki of a conceptual architectural approach - a pristine, essential structure composed of an arrangement of cubes taking the form of a large rectangular block with projecting wings. The 1994 addition consists of a cube added to the main entrance facade housing the new Highvision Theatre, and a restaurant which occupies part of the area beneath one of the wings
