John Hill added this to 6 Innovative New Japanese Houses
Cathelijne Nuijsink's book is structured into four chapters, three of which present the 21 projects (the fourth concludes the book with four thematic essays). The three chapters separate the projects into generations: the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Kengo Kuma is part of the 1950s generation, who the author asserts "are all searching for ways to go beyond modernist ideals." Kuma seems to be going about it in the Steel House through the use of rough, industrial corrugated steel.Here we see the storage and display for some of the client's 10,000 (!) model trains.
