japanese architecture | architecture monographs | GA | ADA

Key to understanding Toyo Ito’s work in its various contexts is an introspective essay, “On Creating Architecture”, in which he writes, “From a certain point on, I came to believe that what is expected in contemporary architecture is ‘strength’ rather than ‘beauty’”. This extensive overview of the architect’s built works from 2002 to 2016 features many notable projects: La Gavia Park in Madrid, London’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, the Municipal Funeral Hall in Gifu, Hôpital Cognacq-Jay in Paris, TOD’S Omotesando Building in Tokyo, Taiwan’s Kaohsiung National Stadium, the Hermès Pavilion in Basel, Museo Internacional del Barroco in Mexico, CapitaGreen in Singapore, and more.
