The Time is Now.


The Time is Now.


Discuss how architecture can reflect the relationship between individual and society based on the ideas of Japanese architect Takamasa Yosizaka (related to my film project the time is now.)

  • Systemic changes

Yosizaka’s ideas about society and his criticism of Western civilization are very timely as we face conflicts and collapse due to over-industrialization and over-development, the excessive and irreversible destruction of nature and natural habitats.
He strove to preserve the regional identity and culture and advocated for best use of the land, not to build more than necessary.
Yosizaka felt that essential design solutions could be arrived at by observing the relationship between humans and nature rather than creating forms and designs based on economic factors or personal inclinations. This approach involves a re-evaluation of society and a return of architecture to the people.
His architecture is invariably a collaborative design effort, a concept he also applied to the individual within society, and to architecture in relation to the city and form and space.

In particular, I would like to discuss his theories of “Discontinuous Unity” and “Iukeiology”.
