Kazuo Shinohara: 3 Houses analyses three major works, House in White (1966), House in Uehara (1976) and House in Yokohama (1984), by the late Kazuo Shinohara (1925 2006), one of the most important and influential Japanese architects of the twentieth century.
The reader will discover a comprehensive selection of plans redrawn to commensurate scale from original working drawings, unpublished holograph sketches, and archival photographs. Contributions from Shinohara's teaching colleagues David B. Stewart and Shin-ichi Okuyama situate the three houses within Shinohara's oeuvre and afford new insight into the architect's distinctive working methods.
A foreword by the well-known architect Ryue Nishizawa confirms Shinohara's continuing influence in the present.
