JA81 is a special issue on Hiroshi Sambuichi, one of the most inventive architects in contemporary Japan. With the accurate reading of topography and climate of the site, Sambuichi creates an architecture integrated with environment, through understanding air and water as moving materials, and composing them with nonmoving materials such as steel and timber.
As the first collection on Sambuichi's works, this issue includes his early projects such as RUNNING GREEN PROJECT and AIR HOUSE and most recent ones INUJIMA ART PROJECT SEIRENSHO, ROKKO SHIDARE OBSERVATORY and MIWA-GAMA (FUSO-AN).
