Item description for Itsuko Hasegawa: Island Hopping - Crossover Architecture by Teruaki Furodoi, Moriko Kira & Katsuhiro Miyamoto...
Itsuko Hasegawa is the most famous woman in Japanese architecture and the most prominent figure in the Shinohara School; her influence on the architecture of Japan cannot be overstated. Her work often plays with the boundaries between the natural and the artificial--one of her most famous buildings, the Yamanashi Museum of Fruit, which is composed of various different but related curvaceous fruitlike forms. "Itsuko Hasegawa: Island Hopping - Crossover Architecturet" presents some of her most innovative and provocative recent projects, including the Fukuroi Culture Center, the Shiogama Lifelong Learning Center, the Kurahashi Community Center; the Namekawa Housing Project, as well as her latest project, the winning entry for the Niagata City Performing Arts Center. This brilliantly reproduced monograph provides an essential look at the work of a designer who has earned her place alongside such figures as Rem Koolhaas as one of the most important architects of the past three decades. Paperback, 128 pages, 9 x 7 inches, 75 color and 45 b&w illustrations.
