The Work of Kisho Kurokawa : Capsule, metabolism, spaceframe, metamorphose
Bijitshu Shuppan Sha, Tokyo 1970 - Folio, 94pp. Vinyl boards in printed card slipcase. Poster and record entitled 'music for living' laid in. Colour and Black & White plates. Text in English and Japanese. Tomic work by Kurokawa published in the same year as Osaka expo '70. Kurokawa pioneered the theory of metabolic architecture, where a city can be seen as a living, breathing entity that behaves like a living organism and requires architecture to reflect it's states of evolution and flux. Kurokawa exemplified his theories in Capsule- the pavillion he designed for expo 70, which is detailed here along with domestic work, seattle civic centre, town plans and offices. Echoes similar theories to some of Archigram's work, though Kurokawa's work was actually built- and also pre-empts ideas later used in the back to land movement and geodesic architecture.
