Toyo Ito is known for combining a process-oriented approach to the individual peculiarities of the task of construction. Technology and tradition seamlessly come together in his firm’s conceptual work to create a dynamic relationship between the building, the environment, and the users. This monograph offers insight into the work of Toyo Ito & Associates, featuring a selection of no less than fourteen projects from the last fifteen years, from the first sketches and prototypes to the finished building. Notable works include the Brugge Pavilion, Matsumoto Performing Arts Centre, National Taichung Theatre, Museo Internacional del Barroco, and others.
