Treehouses, Towers, And Tea Huts
The Architecture Of Terunobu Fujimori
Terunobu Fujimori : He receives an architecture degree from Tôhoku University in 1971, followed by a doctorate from Tokyo University. It is the start of a long career as a professor of the History of Architecture, focusing prevalently on Japanese architecture from the Meiji period (1868-1912) onwards. A turnaround occurs in the early 1990s when the architect is asked to design a small museum in the town where he was born.
The Jinchokan Moriya Historical Museum (1991) is annexed to the Shintoist sanctuary, where the architect's own family worships. This is followed by several other works, from residential buildings to museums to company headquarters and commercial spaces. Especially important is the architect's reinterpretation in a modern key of the traditional tea room, revived by Fujimori in numerous projects. In 2006 he curates the installation of the Japan Pavilion at the Venice Biennale of Architecture.
In 2018, again on the occasion of the Venice Biennale of Architecture, he designs one of the Vatican Chapels installed on the island of San Giorgio in Venice.
