Instagram: Architecture of the rising sun

by Jay Garcia 0 comments

This week on Instagram, RPM looked at Japanese architecture, which is characterised by its understanding of the natural world as a source of insight that mirrors human emotion.

The examples below include traditional and modern buildings that capture the essence of Japanese style and practicality.

Included is the Kinkaku-ji temple, which was first built in 1397 and survived the Onin war when all the other buildings in the complex were burnt down. It was itself burnt down in 1950 before being rebuilt and reopened in 1955.

Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Centre was designed by Kengo Kuma and resembles a stack of smaller buildings with sloping roofs.

House NA was designed by Sou Fujimoto; it comprises three storeys of staggered platforms and all its outside walls are made of glass.
