Jun Aoki Complete Works 3 2005-2014
The third monograph of Japanese architect Jun Aoki, recently known for his widely published Louis Vuitton Matsuya Ginza facade renewal, covers roughly a decade of work. Beginning with the Aomori Museum of Art, the selection of works features a range of scales and functions, from which emerges a portrait of the architect’s philosophy and approach. Interestingly, Aoki chooses to present images of his built works in black and white, appended with detailed drawings and project data in a separate section. Several texts also intersperse the chronologically presented projects, which include Mitsue Primary School, Yeosu Expo Pavilion, BMW Art Car Collection, and more.
