Katsura imperial villa by Francesco Dal Co( Book )

32 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A detailed history of Katsura, the seventeenth-century Imperial Palace in Kyoto, Japan, a pivotal work of Japanese architecture, often described as the 'quintessence of Japanese taste'. First revealed to the modern architectural world by Bruno Taut, the great German architect, in the early twentieth-century, Katsura stunned and then excited the architectural community of the West. Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, pillars of the Modernist establishment, were fascinated by Katsura's 'modernity'. This book documents the palace in detail, combining newly commissioned photographs, detailed drawings, archival material, and historical analysis."--Publisher description

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 234 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."--BOOK JACKET
The Museum of Modern Art, Gunma : Arata Isozaki by Philip Drew( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 232 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

Review text:" Die neun Essays bieten einen neuen Zugang zu Arata Isozaki."Elisabeth Plessen, Umrisse, 11 (2012)" Isozakis Essays erzählen von Vergänglichkeit ebenso wie vom buddhistischen Motiv der Wiederkehr. Weltgeschichte und somit auch Weltarchitektur erscheinen ihm nach jedem 'Tod der Utopien' als zyklisch sich wiederholende Ruinenszenarios, 'simultane Eruptionen' und Neuanfänge."Steffen Gnam, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 10.08.2011" Der transcript-Verlag hat eine schöne Auswahl von neun Texten zusammengestellt und den drei Themenkreisen 'Reale und virtuelle Ruinen', 'Architektur und Stadt' und 'Raum und Zeit' zugeordnet. Isozakis Aratas Texte sind auch für Architekturlaien eine lohnenswerte Lektüre, da sie Gebäude immer in ihrem kulturellen Kontext sehen und zum Nachdenken, unter anderem über die Entwicklung des städtischen Raumes, das Zusammenleben mit anderen Menschen und Kunst anregen."Elisabeth Scherer, Düsseldorfer Japanstudien,, 6 (2011) Besprochen in: Der Architekt, 2 (2011), Andreas Denk, 10 (2011) Fraunhofer IRB, 10 (2011) ARCH+, 208/8 (2012), Stephan Trüby
