Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

For Junya Ishigami (*1974 in Kanagawa, Japan), architecture is a boundless field of infinite possibilities that affects every area of life while raising existential questions and requiring both scientific and artistic observation. Besides childhood fantasies and the power of imagination, the winner of the Golden Lion at the 2010 Venice Biennale of Architecture is also inspired by nature. At the same time, his work process is strictly methodical and oriented toward expanding the existing boundaries between design, architecture, and geography. The aesthetics of concentration, the transparency, and the simplicity of his ideas, models, and buildings are based on complex creative processes. Ishigami presents his holistic search for the right proportions in an exclusive publication: How Small? How Vast? How Architecture Grows. It demonstrates what it looks like to create an environment that bases social life on organic principles.
