A focus on Arata Isozaki launches a series of architectural videos by PLANE–SITE. The initiative is part of the Collateral Events of the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale – opening next May – by non-profit GAA Foundation who is promoting its exhibition “Time–Space–Existence” with a series of video interviews to architecture celebrities.
Arata Isozaki was born in Ōita in 1931 and is considered to be a pioneer of Metabolism, the post-war avant-garde Japanese movement that proposed fantastic urban landscapes synonymous to biological structures. One of Isozaki’s architectural legacies is the concept of ma, the space and time that lies in-between things. The video was recorded in the architect’s studio and offers a glimpse on his daily life and work. Isozaki meditates on his practice and Japanese architectural identity as a whole.
