Japan, now

Post de: Stefan Ghenciulescu

For some 50 years now, Japan has enchanted us with its exceptional architecture. Over this period, the center (the centers, in fact) of world architecture moved from one place to another, the countries or regions coming to the fore and then discretely withdrawing, maybe returning later full of vigour. Well, in Japan’s case the elite production seems seamless. In the 1950s and 1960s the fabulous monsters were especially Kenzo Tange or Kunio Mayekawa.
