Naoya Hatakeyama : excavating the future city by Naoya Hatakeyama( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the past thirty years, Japanese photographer, Naoya Hatakeyama, has undertaken a photographic examination of the life of cities and the built environment. Each of his series focuses on a different facet of the growth and transformation of the urban landscape-- from studies of architectural maquettes to the extraction and use of natural materials such as limestone, as it is quarried via explosive blasts and subsequently incorporated into the construction of new buildings. In particular, Hatakeyama has routinely returned to the Tokyo-Yokohama metropolis, exploring this ever-evolving urban sprawl from both below and above, mapping the growth and expansion of these sites over time. Additional series focus on other forms of human intervention with the landscape and natural materials, including factories and building sites in Japan and abroad. Finally, his most recent photographs of his hometown of Rikuzentakata, a fishing town that was almost completely destroyed by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, are also included-- an ongoing series begun almost immediately following the disaster. These photographs hauntingly embody the death and rebirth of the city, manifesting a deeply personal connection to the ongoing intersection of geology, architecture, and time.

10 editions published between 1914 and 2015 in Spanish and English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After seven months of restoration, and a hard management for its purchase, the House of Juan O'Gorman projected in 1929 will reopen its doors in 2016. Located in front of the former Hacienda de Goicochea (today San Ángel Inn restaurant) was built in what was the tennis courts of the estate, lands acquired by Juan O'Gorman with the payment of fees for his collaborations with Carlos Obregón Santacilia. Completed in 1929, it is considered as 'the first functionalist home' in Mexico, in whichintentionally simplifies the naked use of concrete slabs and makes the slenderness of the posts look, evoking the "Maisons domino" of Le Corbusier (1914)
NUNO : visionary Japanese textiles by Reiko Sudo( Book )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Named with a word meaning 'cloth', NUNO is a Japanese textile-design company. Founded in 1984 by Junichi Arai and the company's current director, Reiko Sudo, NUNO is known for its innovations in textile production. NUNO designers are inspired by the past, present and future, integrating elements, such as paper or feathers or aluminium, with industrial methods, such as spatter-plating and chemical etching. All NUNO textiles - more than 2,500 have been created - are produced in Japan and are usually the handiwork of an individual craftsperson. Each bolt of cloth has a story to tell. Though their textiles appear regularly in books, textile exhibitions and museum collections, a comprehensive NUNO monograph has not existed - until now. Featuring influential or experimental fabrics, the book is organized into seven chapters, each based on a theme deriving from the onomatopoeic coupling in Japanese that defines a family of fabrics. For example, 'Shima Shima', meaning 'striped', presents striped designs ranging from bold and contrasting like zebra to subtly variegated like a tabby cat. Based on interviews, archival research and factory visits, the texts are illustrated with specially commissioned photos and drawings. Interspersed are essays by a wide range of contributors, from writer Haruki Murakami and architect Toyo Ito to curator Anna Jackson."--
Koko ni kenchiku wa kanō ka = Architecture. possible here? "home-for-all" by Toyo Ito( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in Japanese and English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Authored by Toyo Ito, Kumiko Inui, Sou Fujimoto, Akihisa Hirata, Naoya Hatakeyama, and others, this book gives a comprehensive look at the process of catastrophe and response which followed the Great East Japan Earthquake, as presented in the Japan Pavilion Exhibition at the 13th Biennale of Architecture in Venice. By posing this question, an assertion that architecture can only recover its essential character under such conditions is made, enabling a re-examination of its essential meaning. Through texts, photographs, sketches and models, the book is a both a timeline of events and a reaffirmation of the energy, creativity and dedication of its participants

The urbanism of Metabolism : visions, scenarios and models for the mutant city of tomorrow by Raffaele Pernice( )

2 editions published in 2022 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edited book explores and promotes reflection on how the lessons of Metabolism experience can inform current debate on city making and future practice in architectural design and urban planning. Sixty years on from when the Metabolist manifesto was published, the authors' original contributions highlight the persistent links between present and past that can help to re-imagine new urban futures as well as the design of innovative intra-urban relationships and spaces. The essays are written by experienced scholars and renowned academics from Japan, Australia, Europe, S. Korea and the US and expose Metabolism's special merits in promoting new urban models and evaluate the current legacy of its architectural projects and urban design lessons. They offer a critical, intellectual, and up-to-date account of the Metabolism projects and ideas in the context of current evolution of architectural and urbanism discourse in a global context"--
