Ryuji Fujimura: The Form of Knowledge – The Prototype of Architectural Thinking and Its Application
TOTO Publishing, 2018
Tokyo-based architect Ryūji Fujimura approaches his field as creative relationships between knowledge and form (the materialisation of knowledge), thereby examining and exploring all aspects of design as the prototype of architectural thinking. This volume features Fujimura’s recent architectural designs and essays, tracing his attempts to redefine architecture as a dynamic intellectual tool for the realisation of more tolerant societies that appreciate diversity. It is set against the background of today’s social context, where people fluctuate between democracy and populism, while algorithms and artificial intelligence handle an ever-increasing volume of information.
