Reviews - What do customers think about Kisho Kurokawa: Museums (Talenti)?

Illustrated architectural monograph typical for l'ArcaEdizioni  May 24, 2009
It is a typical and copiously illustrated in color survey of (museum) works (projects) of one design firm (architect). Like other architectural monographs from the l'Arca Talenti collection sized 9 1/2 x 13 3/8 inch, it was beautifully published on glossy paper, and full of excellent color photos, but also fewer usually b&w technical drawings (plans, sections, sketches, elevations, 3D schematics, axonometric views, etc.). There is a short introduction to the architect on a few pages, then the main part presenting architectural works, and ending lists of (selected) projects (credits) and office architects (biographies), etc. Each architectural work is depicted on several pages by illustrations and a title page with a short text description. The quality of printing and bounding is excellent. It is slightly less technical and more album-like than the Architectural Monographs (No) series (or their present equivalent) published by Wiley-Academy (formerly Academy Editions / St. Martin's Press or Rizzoli).
But, "Kisho Kurokawa: Abstract Symbolism", also from the Talenti series, includes the architect's design of 5 museums, best up to 1996, and it is twice as thick at 199 pages.
Kisho Kurokawa is a deeply attentive interpreter of museum architecture, who has always posed the problem of how a "container" is directly related to the nature of "contents" whose meanings have gradually developed and transformed from the latter half of the 20th century onwards. This book traces the research and experimentation of this great Japanese master, in which technical wizardry stands alongside a scientific vision of design to create organic interaction resulting in a deeply humanistic notion of architecture. The numerous museums designed or constructed by Kurokawa illustrated here provide a clear picture of the style and conceptual vision that have made him one of the leading figures on the modern-day cultural scene.
