JA43: small

JA 43 is a special edition on the theme of small architecture. In installing small objects, the relationship to the surrounding environment is clarified and put to maximum use, so that it may be possible to discern their key ideas without even knowing what is going on in the interior spaces. It seems there are cases where the hierarchies of scale and function are equalized or even reversed. These could be considered trivial matters, yet their total influence is significant. In other words, this special edition traces the possibilities implied by small objects that may lead to the discovery of concepts that bear directly on all architectural notion.
