Jo Nagasaka On My Mind
The latest instalment of the ‘Contemporary Architect’s Concept Series’ features Jo Nagasaka of Schemata Architects, a Tokyo-based office active since 1998. The book was designed by So Hashizume, who also designed the Schemata Architects website. As such, it is an extension and continued expression of the office’s identity, a concept that encourages referring to the website while reading the book. Seven contributors write about Nagasaka and his practice – including long-time book lover Hiroshi Eguchi, who helped produce this edition – while Nagasaka in turn responds with his thoughts on architecture and design, plus his own work and activities beyond building.
