PREMIO INTERNAZIONALE BIENNALE DI PISA
INTERNATIONAL AWARD BIENNALE DI PISA
Ishigami eredita dalla cultura giapponese la consapevolezza che l’architettura esiste qui e ora, ma non è necessariamente costruita per l’eternità: così, per lui, fragilità, delicatezza, ambiguità, errore sono fattori accettabili e, in ultimo, garanzia della massima libertà progettuale. Ishigami sperimenta una nuova concezione contemporanea di comfort, basata anche sulla capacità di ciascuno di prendersi cura del delicatissimo equilibrio planetario (da artribune).

Junia Ishigami is one of the most outstanding young Japanese architects of present time and he has obtained recognition due to his experimental approach of the project development. Sensitive to the specific local features, Ishigami puts, at the heart of the debate, key architectural issues that sometimes might be abandoned in the daily practice. Time, tension and freedom are concepts that are always present in his production somehow, becoming more visible in most of his recent works. Read the interview in ArchDaily
Junya Ishigami (1974) worked as an architect at SANAA before founding the prize-winning Junya Ishigami + Associates in 2004. Winner of the Golden Lion award at the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2010, he was the subject of a major and critically acclaimed solo exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in 2018 that is traveling to the Power Station of art in Shanghai later this year. He is known for designs with dream-like qualities that incorporate the natural world, such as landscapes, forests and clouds, in an architectural practice that places humankind as part of nature.
