Family Background
o Born to a wealthy family
and graduating from the
University of Tokyo in
1954, Isozaki started his
career under the
influential Japanese
modernist Kenzo Tange.
Isozaki became his
protégé, and even after
leaving Tange's firm in
1963, continued working
with his old mentor
throughout the 1970s.

Isozaki’s LIFE &
History

Isozaki graduated From
the University of Tokyo

(Also architecture department)

Influenced from an early age by the Swiss


modernist, Le Corbusier, Tange gained
international recognition in 1949 when he
won the competition for the design
of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. He was a
member of CIAM (Congres Internationaux
d'Architecture Moderne) in the 1950s

Isozaki, though, swiftly made his


own name in architecture, attracting
attention for 1966's Ōita Prefectural
Library, a concrete construction that
shares traits with both Brutalism
and Metabolism—and a design that
brought enough respect that he
was invited to be the chief architect
of Osaka's 1970 Expo alongside
Tange.

Either way, his idiosyncratic style


caught the mood; by the 1980s he
was working on Los Angeles'
Museum of Contemporary Art to
public and critical commendation,
and his figure rose even further with
his Olympic commissions at the
1992 and 2006 Games, both of
which were well received for their
attention to the locations they were
built in.

Inspiration

!
o His work in the late 1960swas influenced
by the Metabolism school, but
mannerism is discernable in the
exaggerated expression of the structural
members. The joint Core System that he
developed in 1960was essential to the
Metabolism movement and was
influential to Tange, his former teacher.
o His later works are Mannered and
self-conscious, borrowing from a
spectrum of architectural influences. He
appropriates design ideas from such
diverse sources as the Vienna Secession,
Marcel Cuchamp and Archigram.

Gunma Museum of Fine
Arts

!
The design is based on the interaction of two architectural systems:
The skeletal party of forty-foot cubes (the basic structure)
The exhibition spaces, stairways, administrative offices, lighting, and so on.
(the supplemental structure).
The series of cubes, laid out on an expansive lawn in a parklike setting, takes the
form of one large rectangular block, which houses the main exhibition space, and
two shorter, projecting wings. The first of these is perpendicular to the central
block and contains the entrance hall. The second, angled off the building's
primary axis, holds a gallery for traditional Japanese art. This wing is elevated
above a square reflecting pool, with an open terrace at the first-floor level."

The Museum of
Contemporary Arts in LA

!
The building is built around a terraced courtyard.
The galleries are below ground level, most having overhead lighting. Under the courtyard, the galleries lead
into each other from left to right.
Above the courtyard, the only building which stands out is the section devoted to administration, witha roof in
the shape of a semicirculardome
The whole geometric composition of the building is based on the golden section as the Western method of
planning shapes and subdivided the spaces, and on the oriental theory of ying and yang, positive—negative.
The rooms in the extremes of the building have expressive skylights in volumetrically pure shapes: various
pyramids and a series of linear skylights
The exterior is a natural reddish coloured stone, contrasting withthe transparent skylights and the lustreof the
semi-cylindrical roof of the offices..."
