Idea Code 13314
Tadashi Kawamata’s curious installations manifest at a variety of locations around the globe, from Centre Pompidou, Paris, and Madison Square Park, New York, to Documenta IX and the Shanghai Biennale. Works emphasise architectural space as urban or designed social context or product with often temporary pieces constructed from timber or locally salvaged materials. This book offers an invaluable survey, with photographic documentation ranging from early domestic interventions, through prolific activity in public realms and to the recent ‘tree huts’, which imagine an elevated, alternative perspective. With texts by Jonathan Watkins, Martin Friedman and Guy Tortosa.
