Tokyo architect Fujii is often compared with Peter Eisenman since both view architecture as capable of being read for "meaning." But while Eisenman is influenced by structuralism and deconstruction, Fujii finds inspiration in existentialism and psychoanalysis. He attempts to twist familiar architectural details by using elements of a grid system repetitively, and often disrupts the pattern by adding a similar, slightly off-center grid. He also uses windows in grids that produce varied and subtle lighting effects. Similar to American minimalists such as Sol LeWitt and Dan Flavin, Fujii seeks to create an experience that is both personal and mysterious. The lucid essays by Frampton and Whitehead provide background about Fujii and place him in an architectural context while the three essays by Fujii are engaging discussions of his ideas. More than 200 illustrations, some in color.
