Lixil, 2016. Hardcover in slipcase, 230 pp. Heavily illustrated. This volume introduces the architecture of Kazunari Sakamoto through drawings, photographs, and text, yet does this using a special mixture of variously sized images made by both professionals and amateurs. Some were taken directly following a building’s completion, while others were made decades later; color and b/w images. Texts by the editor are interspersed with fragments of the architect’s own words describing his work, the criticisms of others, and analysis from the period when a particular project was built. In this way the book’s format acts in concert with that of Sakamoto’s architecture, a coexistence and diversity of relationships.
