The debut portfolio by Onishimaki+Hyakudayuki Architects, a young Japanese duo based in Tokyo, focuses on their concept of telling architecture like a story. At the forefront of a new generation of architects in Japan, their projects are known for narrative characteristics and are integrated into the environment. Although only a handful have been realised, their positive attitude towards architecture views reality in a rather candid fashion, accepting and inheriting the history of a place. Along with a foreword by Toyo Ito and critical texts by Taro Igarashi and Yoshikazu Nango, this beautifully presented book highlights significant works, such as the Double Helix House.
