Per le sue ar­chi­tet­tu­re dal “rap­por­to fe­con­do con l’ele­men­to na­tu­ra­le” Ju­nya Ishi­ga­mi si è ag­giu­di­ca­to il BSI Swiss Ar­chi­tec­tu­ral Award 2016

The 2016 BSI Swiss Ar­chi­tec­tu­ral Award has go­ne to Ju­nya Ishi­ga­mi as reward for his ar­chi­tec­tu­ral work and its “fer­ti­le re­la­tion­ship wi­th the ele­ment of na­tu­re” The land­sca­pe can be un­der­stood as a re­la­tion­ship bet­ween ar­chi­tec­tu­re and na­tu­re lin­ked to sec­tions of ter­ri­to­ry, or the en­ti­re ci­ty – or wi­th re­la­tion to in­te­riors. This is a realm in whi­ch we ha­ve to ac­k­no­w­led­ge the special work of the Ja­pa­ne­se school, whi­ch over the la­st twen­ty years, th­rou­gh the work of va­rious fi­gu­res (Ta­dao An­do, Toyo Ito, SANAA, Ate­lier Bow-Wow, Sou Fu­ji­mo­to and others) has for­ged its own kind of poe­tic and di­stinc­ti­ve. Ju­nya Ishi­ga­mi is one of the mo­st bril­liant ex­po­nen­ts of this kind of vi­sion. His hou­ses and pa­vi­lions of­fer an ex­tre­me and me­ta­pho­ri­cal way of un­der­stand the di­stan­ce – pe­rhaps un­brid­gea­ble – bet­ween wild forms of na­tu­re and ar­chi­tec­tu­re un­der­stood as an ab­stract and con­cep­tual art – ma­de up of “point, li­ne and sur­fa­ce”. Ishi­ga­mi and his ra­re­fied ele­gan­ce has now been ho­nou­red by the 2016 BSI Swiss Ar­chi­tec­tu­ral Award. Th­ree of his works ha­ve been sin­gled out: the Ka­na­ga­wa In­sti­tu­te of Tech­no­lo­gy Work­shop (2008), the Ja­pa­ne­se pa­vi­lion at the 11th Ve­ni­ce Bien­na­le of Ar­chi­tec­tu­re (2008) – whi­ch won the Gol­den Lion, pic­tu­red – and the Hou­se wi­th Plan­ts in To­kyo (2012)
