Japan-based Go Hasegawa is a much sought-after architect who has built a career through his intensive inquiry on our perception of space, gravity, and time. He challenges pre-existing ideas on largeness/smallness, heaviness/lightness, and newness/oldness, seeking values not previously recognized. His work has explored several building types in addition to the houses for which he is known. This issue gives an in-depth look at Hasegawa’s practice, featuring apartments in Okachimachi, a gazebo in Shanghai, an iced coffee shop in Tokyo, a chapel in Guastalla, a townhouse in Asakusa, and other works.
