About this title


Short Description Following the same format as Electa's other recent titles in its Architectural Documents series (Toyo Ito, Dominique Perrault, Carlos Ferrater, Steven Holl), this book presents the work of a compelling young architect on the international scene: Shuhei Endo (b. 1960), based in Osaka, Japan. Endo, 42, founded his own studio in 1988 and has built nearly 20 small-scale projects in Japan whose unmistakeable forms resemble strands of ribbon spiralling over and under the ground. Endo primarily uses sheets of corrugated steel, combined with glass and concrete, that wrap and fold to compose walls and enclose interior spaces. This book is the first monograph on the architect and showcases his projects and built work to date.

About the Author:

Hiroyuki Suzuki is a professor of architecture at the University of Tokyo, where he has taught since 1990. He has published essays and articles in leading Japanese and international periodicals and is the author of the books Shisendo: Hall of the Poetry Immortals (1991) and Back from Utopia (2002).
