Toyo Ito - Generative Order (out of print)
|Author:||Jessie A. Turnbull|
aka 'Forces of Nature'
Unfortunately this book has just gone out of print.
Toyo Ito: Generative order is based on the Kenneth Kassler endowed lecture delivered by Ito at Princeton University School of Architecture in the spring of 2009. The book is delivered primarily in Ito's voice, through the lecture transcript, which is the focus of the book, and through extended interviews, and a previously untranslated essay from 1980, all of which tie together his ideas of the interface of nature and society through the formal constructs of architecture. The publication is unique in bringing together unpublished visuals of built and un-built projects by Ito, as well as bringing together his theory spanning across his whole career, with commentary by respected scholars Stan Allen and Julian Worrall.
