Most widely held works by Arata Isozaki
Antonio Gaudí by Hiroshi Teshigahara( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in Japanese and held by 452 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

The Museum of Modern Art, Gunma : Arata Isozaki by Philip Drew( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 224 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
