Arata Isozaki (b. 1931) is a Japanese architect and theorist. He won the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2019. Ken Tadahi Oshima is a professor at the Department of Architecture at the University of Washington. He teaches on subjects such as transnational architectural history and theory. From front flap: “This book presents a selection of his vast oeuvre in six thematic chapters [Process, Genesis, Atlas, Trans, Isle, and Flux], conceived by Arata Isozaki himself together with Ken Tadashi Oshima. These chapters illuminate the principles of Isozaki’s informative theorization of architecture as well as presenting his own architectural works. Each chapter is introduced by Oshima, followed by conceptual essays by Isozaki drawn from throughout his career. Projects are then presented in depth through a wealth of illustrations from the Isozaki Office Archive including sketches, silkscreens, drawings, photographs and models."
