I just got a bicycle. Nice new way to find interesting works here and there, where you have not any clue about them it is really surprising, and exciting. This is the sort of things you are expecting from Japan and not likely from other countries I guess.
This was on my way to a local library. It turned out to be an awarded architect with some reputation in Japan, not so much abroad.
Here his career on wikipedia. Mr. Aaron Betsky dedicated an article on him “The other Japanese Architecture”, here. and also a monography you can find online. The official architect website, here. Although it does not have an english version it has voices in double version.
here a nice shot by somebody with a native language on the east part of Europe. The black shilouette is the side part of my shot.
Notably I encountered one of his works, many time with my kid, when we went to the SHOWAKINENKOEN or (Showa memorial park) which is on the outskirts of Tokyo and it is a huge park, nice for ciclying, a 14 km track dedicated.
His fog work is pictured in this shot.
