The second in a two-volume introduction to the extraordinary career of architect Toyo Ito, this monograph features 20 of his works in Japan and abroad since the Sendai Mediatheque, including the 2002 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, Tama Art University Library and Kaohsiung Stadium, plus ongoing projects such as the National Taichung Theater.
In addition, Ito's endeavours surrounding his Home-for-All project (featured at the 2012 Venice Biennale) are given special attention.
In a conversation with Terunobu Fujimori, Ito reveals his personal insight regarding these edited buildings and projects, which are accompanied by abundant photographs, drawings and sketches.
