YOSIZAKA Takamasa Panorama World: from life-size to the earth

Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo will be hosting an exhibition of Tokyo-born architect YOSIZAKA Takamasa (1917-1980).
YOSIZAKA Takamasa was an architect who was active from the postwar reconstruction period until 1980. He studied under Wajiro Kon, known as the founder of “Modernology,” and Le Corbusier, the maestro of modern architecture. YOSIZAKA’s works include YOSIZAKA House, his personal residence built on an artificial ground*, Japan Pavilion, Biennial of Venice, which received the Minister of Education Award for Fine Arts, AIJ Prize-winning Athénée Français, and Inter-University Seminar House, which was selected and designated as Historical Architecture by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government to name a few. He is known for the unique architecture with its sculptural concrete forms.

*In order to solve the housing problem after the World War II, YOSIZAKA aimed to “create a land by artificial power where everything was ready for living.” He called this “artificial ground.”
