Based on an exhibition of Masaaki Hiromura’s personal repertoire as a designer and architect, this handsome volume offers insight into his design process and the thought that goes into a design. He addresses questions of whether new designs are of added value, or if such a design is necessary, and thereby also considers the negative aspects and potential drawbacks. It features numerous works and projects on every scale by Hiromura in its analysis, from wayfinding, signage, and labels, to domestic objects and entire interior design schemes. Richly supplemented with his own writings on the nature of design, the book includes an in-depth interview with the architect.
