KUROKAWA, KISHO - Intercultural Architecture: The Philosophy of Symbiosis

Title: Intercultural Architecture: The Philosophy of Symbiosis
Description: The American Institute of Architects Press, Washington, 1991. Large quarto gate-fold paperback; 208pp., colour & monochrome illustrations. Mild rubbing and wear to edges. Near fine otherwise. '...architect Kurokawa gives us a further explication of his synthesist theory of architecture, called symbiosis. In his explanation he draws on aspects of human culture that are often lacking in modern architecture: the values of humanness and the use and presentation of wabi the patina of culture something develops over time and the cultural value it represents. As in many other fields, Japan continues to adopt a symbiotic stance in its architecture because of pressures of population, overconcentration of resources, a booming economy, and the "new" global consciousness of the Japanese.' - Mike Heines
