MAKI. Frampton, Kenneth. Fumihiko Maki

Cl. Phaidon. 2008

Book ID: 81248

Includes the Spiral Building in Tokyo, the Fujisawa Municipal Gymnasium, the Kaze-No-Oka Crematorium in Nakatsu, and a tower currently under construction for the World Trade Center site in New York. The projects are organized roughly chronologically, but are also discussed thematically. Some projects, including Hillside Terrace, a mixed-use complex that Maki was involved with for almost 30 years, are examined not just at the moment after construction but as places that evolve over time. Buildings of every scale are included, from a 150 m2 floating pavilion to a 200,000 m2 college campus. The range of projects included, from early, experimental works to projects currently under construction in Canada, Switzerland, Japan, and the US give the reader a chance to examine in full the development of one of the most revered architects working today.

320 pp., 350 color, 150 B&W llus.
