JA 114 : Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP
This issue brings together almost two decades of projects undertaken since Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP was established in 2002. Organised chronologically, these buildings demonstrate a diversity of structures, materials, styles, and atmospheres, tracing a trajectory that shows how Nakamura explores and approaches optimal architecture for the environment and regionality of each place. The world is becoming increasingly homogenised, and the uniqueness of place and regionality continue to diminish, which is why Nakamura wishes to contribute to a movement that seeks to recover real relationships and locality. Features more than 30 aesthetically intelligent and sensitive projects.
