Terunobu Fujimori Architect

Terunobu Fujimori Architect

The sophisticated designs by Terunobu Fujimori (1946) are fascinating: archaic, eccentric, poetic, and ecological, almost all of them are made of simple, traditional materials such as earth, stone, wood, coal, bark, and mortar. His architecture appeals to primordial instincts, promising warmth and protection. His structures serve as role models for a generation of young international architects who value a mode of building that is ecological, historically aware, and sustainable.

This publication uses models, drawings, architectural plans, and photographs to examine the designs by Fujimori, who enjoys being referred to as the world’s only Surrealist architect. Also documented is a teahouse designed for the garden at the Villa Stuck, a structure that is typical of Fujimori’s intimate style of architecture.
