JA 93 Spring, 2014
- JA93 features the complete works of Kazuo Shinohara and showcases his approach to post-war Japanese architecture starting with the 1954 "House in Kugayama", to his posthumous and unbuilt "House in Tateshina Project"
Kazuo Shinohara is known globally as an architect representative of Japan’s post-war era and JA93 is devoted to his complete works. Most of his designs have been for private residences and many of.the projects have been published in magazines and other media. The manner in which his work was represented was very important to him and he was known to be selective in choosing the photography, diagrams, and descriptions that were published. Shinohara previously collaborated on how his work was included in Shinkenchiku and JA, this issue combines this content into a complete works edition. From the “House in Kugayama” in 1954, to his posthumous and unbuilt work of the “House in Tateshina Project”, these projects showcase his approach towards architecture. Since his passing in 2006, Shinohara has been awarded with the special commemorative Golden Lion from the Venice Biennale and a series of retrospective exhibitions were held in China and the United States.
