Summary note:
Following up the wide interest in the wake of Takaharu Tezukas TEDtalk 'The best kindergarten you've ever seen' which is among the ten most popular TEDtalks of 2015, this monograph provides further introduction to the design philosophy behind the studio's built work. The book primarily focuses on the lecture 'Beyond Architecture' which Takaharu Tezuka gave in October of 2013 at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD). Introducing Tezuka Architects seminal projects spanning the past 12 years, Takaharu explores a trajectory from the Roof House in (2001) up through the recently completed Child Chemo House in (2013). Tezuka questions our relationship to technology, suggesting that now in the 21st century, technology is integral to our existence as humans. This book illustrates the impact of design and its values on society.
