Active since the early 1990s, architect Katsuhiro Miyamoto decided at some point in his career to return home to Hyogo, from where his office currently bases its operations. Choosing to embrace Japan’s periphery over its centre, he has developed ways to combine two sets of expectations. This weighty monograph contains many of his projects in the provinces beyond the capital, presenting carefully crafted solutions to limited space and strict budgets, and challenging concepts for competitions. According to a critical essay by Dana Buntrock, “nature has a place in his buildings, but in an offhand way”. This is the comprehensive guide to Miyamoto’s vision and practice.
