Riken Yamamoto

Ryokuentoshi "Inter-Junction City"

'91 Jul.4-Aug.10

Riken Yamamoto summed up the relationship between architecture and city in his urban planning project entitled "Ryokuentoshi Inter-junction city"(1991-). For Yamamoto, a single work of architecture carries within it the essence of the city. Reaching into the city, the solitary structure obscures any territorial boundaries. Yamamoto assert that final shape of the city is thus realized within a solitary work of architecture. He outlines this theory of architecture while incorporating the theme appearing in "Ryokuentoshi". It is a suggestive exhibition which testifiles to the rich talents of this noteworthy and self-driven architect.
