From the Publisher. In this chunky, satisfying volume, the young, internationally acclaimed Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto (born 1971) elucidates his architectural vision via more than 120 models of his built structures (which he himself has photographed), accompanied by his brief, aphoristic observations and questions on the philosophy that each structure expresses. The models are for buildings ranging from very small structures to huge constructions several thousand feet high, and even whole city blocks. An appendix presents an email correspondence conducted by the architect with the residents of his detached houses, House Na and House N, who describe the functionality of the buildings and their feelings about living there. Superbly designed by Thomas Mayfried, Futurospective Architecture offers a manifesto from an architect who has already received much international attention.
