JA46 : hiroshi naito

JA46 is a special edition devoted to architect Hiroshi Naito. The works gathered here, ranging from his early buildings to projects now in progress, are selected from a period of some twenty years. Throughout this span of time, Naitos design stance has been constant and characterized by a breadth of vision encompassing dimensions from 1/1 to 1/2,000. 1/1 means the design issues studied in the building at scale: its components and detailing. 1/2,000 means the buildings environmental context and landscape. Naitos buildings emerge uniquely from his ability to unify these apparent polar extremes. In this respect, they challenge us to consider the rightful course for architecture in the future. Although the works introduced here represent only a portion of Naitos architectural vision, they reveal the figure of architecture as timeless and providing continuity within relentless change.
