Most widely held works by Arata Isozaki
Japan-ness in architecture by Arata Isozaki( Book )
20 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 443 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."--BOOK JACKET
Antonio Gaudí by Hiroshi Teshigahara( Visual )
3 editions published in 2008 in Japanese and English 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

Katsura imperial villa by Arata Isozaki( Book )
14 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 257 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
The Museum of Modern Art, Gunma : Arata Isozaki by Philip Drew( Book )
6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 231 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
