HASEGAWA, Itsuko; KADOWAKI, Kozo
CCA Singles - Meanwhile in Japan
In the third volume of the CCA Singles series, Itsuko Hasegawa is in conversation with Kozo Kadowaki and revisits her earliest projects. The conversation was held in Tokyo with the participation of Chié Rokutanda, Mikio Wakabayashi, Yutaro Muraji, Takehiko Higa, Teppei Fujiwara, Koji Ichikawa and Souhei Imamura, as part of Meanwhile in Japan, a CCA c/o Tokyo program conceived by its curator, Kayoko Ota.
This book is the first in a series of three that each present conversations between key figures of Japanese architecture (Itsuko Hasegawa, Hiroshi Hara and Toyo Ito) of the 1970s and 1980s and a young generation of architects and scholars. This series explore how young Japanese architects of that period attempted to redefine architecture beyond the doctrine of modernism and address the needs of society at large, as well as question the role of the architect.
