This volume introduces the architecture of Kazunari Sakamoto through drawings, photographs, and text, yet does this using a special mixture of variously sized images made by both professionals and amateurs. Some were taken directly following a building’s completion, while others were made decades later; some are in colour, others are black and white. Texts by the editor are interspersed with fragments of the architect’s own words describing the architecture, the criticisms of others, and analysis from the period when a particular project was built. In this way the book’s format acts in concert with that of Sakamoto’s architecture, a coexistence and diversity of relationships.
