The Architectural Reverie of Terunobu Fujimori
I feel like an overexcited child when I see the beautiful, playful and dreamlike creations of Japanese Architect Terunobu Fujimori. His work, drawing from a vast basin of traditional ecological knowledge of indigenous Japanese building methods, interprets these sophisticated and ancient techniques into inventive, innocent and truly unique little gems of contemporary architecture. Featured here is a teaser showing a little of Fujimori’s unconventional techniques such as carved tree trunk models, charcoal wood cladding and brussel sprout window detailing as well as his original take on the green roof and Japanese tea house.
