Kazuo Shinohara (1925-2006) was an influential architect of Japan's postwar era, renowned for his minimalist houses that revolutionized our perception of domesticity, tradition, nature, and urban architecture. His designs embody a poetic formalism that melds simplicity and surprise, order and unpredictability. This book offers a comprehensive view of Shinohara's entire career, including his lesser-known institutional-scale works that have been previously overlooked. By presenting his iconic houses and later works together, the book highlights Shinohara's concept of the house as equivalent to the city. It features new scholarly essays, interviews with collaborators and clients, translations of Shinohara's seminal texts, and never-before-seen archival drawings and personal photographs. Through this volume, Shinohara's architectural legacy is reframed within the wider social and cultural context of Japan and the world.
