Tezzo Nishizawa – Chance Favors the Prepared Mind
The first monograph of the collected works of architect Tezzo Nishizawa introduces 30 projects across three typologies: art exhibitions, museums, and residences. The publication begins with a series of photographs that illustrate the unique perspective and philosophy underlying and linking these works. Following that are detailed plans and commentaries on each project, where the images and drawings serve to reveal the architect’s methodology and thought. A postscript by Nishizawa touches on the relationship between exhibition layouts and architectural design, in which the architect also elaborates on the reasons for his particular interest in collaborative design.
