Fourteen incidents that Waro Kishi identifies as having shaped his perspective and approach to architectural design begin this monograph, which goes on to present a wealth of selected projects by the architect in elegant detail. His personal interactions with 1960s Southern Californian houses, the Pantheon, Hong Kong, rice terraces in Bali, and more determined his path as a designer. The architect’s own selected works (39 in total) span his career from 1982 until the present. Among these are numerous private homes, the Leica Ginza Showroom, the Zohiko Urushi Museum, and an annex project for Kyoto City Museum, plus temples, lounges, and even urban-scale planning projects.
