Kazuhiro Kojima + Kazuko Akamatsu / C+a Essence Behind
|Author:||Kazuhiro Kojima + Kazuko Akamatsu|
Volume 21 in the ‘Contemporary Architect’s Concept Series’ assembles numerous projects and presents them in a flexible structure, so that readers can begin anywhere. The overarching concept established by Kazuhiro Kojima and Kazuko Akamatsu – known as Coelacanth and Associates, based in Tokyo and Nagoya – is that many different elements in architecture may be regarded as its essence. Through this selection of projects and works, among them the Oslo National Museum, Yamoto Town Hall, and Shibuya South Block Project, they explore themes like gravity and floating, materials, reflection and absorption, experience of space, distance, and magic of space.
