In 2009, Junya Ishigami’s workshop design for the Kanagawa Institute of Technology won Japan’s top architecture award: the Architectural Institute of Japan Prize. This book offers more proof of Ishigami’s precocious talent. Plans, designs, photographs, models and writings from various projects illustrate Ishigami’s stated aim to “embody in architecture that which has never been embodied before.” An essay by historian Taro Igarashi assesses Ishigami’s importance and success, including his Golden Lion award at the 12th International Architecture Biennale.
