Description

In front of the backdrop of recent disasters Kenya Hara founded the platform "house vision" in order to contemplate possible new ways of living in the post-industrial age, while at the same time combining sustainable architecture with the latest technology. Containing essays by renowned architects and artists, House Vision continues where the eponymous exhibition left off. Toyo Ito, the winner of this year's Pritzker Prize, develops a vision of a house for a nostalgic future. Sou Fujimoto invents a "Powerhouse," which unites all electronic applications in itself; the fl ower artist Makoto Azuma designs walls with plants, and Hiroshi Sugimoto invokes native materials, using them to design futuristic ways of living. This publication sheds light on this Japanese project from a western standpoint, offering generally applicable ideas for architecture and life in the future. With contributions by Makoto Azuma, Masataka Baba, Joshiaki Fujimori, Sou Fujimoto, Kenya Hara, Kunio Harimoto, Atsumi Hayashi, Hidemitsu Hori, Akira Ichikawa, Jun Inokuma, Toyo Ito, Masaaki Kanai, Norio Kanayama, Kengo Kuma, Muneaki Masuda, Toshiharu Naka, Yuri Naruse, Ban Shigeru, Hirokazu Suemitsu, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Naoya Toida, Sadao Tsuchiya, Riken Yamamoto, Hiroya Yoshizato.
