Texts by Peter Wilson, Kiko Mozuna, Feliz Ruiz, Kunihiko Yoshimeki
In the mod-1970s, Chris Fawcett wrote about Kiko Mozuna's highly symbolic houses in his book, the New Japanese house. These narratives in concrete preceded, and in many cases inspired, attempts in the West to reinstate a level of profound meaning into the act of building. Recently, Mozune has built large, enigmatic buildings with an intensity and mythical quality developed from the early work. Drawing inspiration partly from Shintoism and esoteric Buddhism, and partly from Western ideas and cultural concepts, he combines myth and legend with high technology.
