Mies. Easily the first impression.....
However that is exactly the stereotype this new monograph tries to break. For recent private project wood plank/slat & metal siding accounts most of exterior cladding. Intersection, juxtaposition, and differentiation are utilized as main organizing strategy. Higher degree of attention is shown in spatial/volumetric dialogue rather than coherence and purity of details. All of these contribute to the deviation from monolithic steel /glass box with introverted courtyard, to a living organization that allows multiple reading and freedom of exterior void. Oddly those didn't happen to the public projects, most of which still retain the Miesien approach with clearly articulated volumes and façade.
Eclectic transformation. The second one.....
This is a nicely edited book with well chosen, high resolution pictures. Line weight is a little inconsistent and program is not labeled, which is not too much an issue. My only complaint is that the choice of cover photo doesn't really reflect his typical work.
Kazurasei Antique Gallery- fantastic material palette & attention of detail
House in Kurakuen II- arguably his most complex spatial exercise
