Fujimoto: Towards a Non-Intentional Architecture
Sou Fujimoto (born 1971) is a Japanese architect noted for his delicate light structures and permeable enclosures. In 2014, after three years of research, design and construction, Fujimoto's studio, Sou Fujimoto Architects, created Mirrored Gardens, a village-inspired arts complex of platforms and cabins on the outskirts of Guangzhou, China. The locally sourced structure houses a gallery, art studios and visitor facilities. This book reflects the research that inspired the Mirrored Gardens. Touching on Chinese garden and Japanese Zen garden study, permaculture and farming practices, Towards a Non-Intentional Space is an unusual look into innovative architecture oriented toward a quotidian, farming lifestyle.
