Junya Ishigami: Small Images
INAX Publishing, Japan, 2008
Delightfully conceived, Ishigami has chosen to present the projects by his office dissected into 500 smaller illustrations and accompanied by some 150 blocks of text. In so doing, the defining lines of the respective projects are rendered ambiguous, and a vague, abstract image of the whole emerges lending itself to new associations and discoveries. Works, projects, plans, photographs, models and research reveal a sensitive and intriguing architecture from this young Japanese office.
