the exhibition reveals ishigami‘s research into freedom, fluidity, and the future of architecture accompanied by a book retracing the genesis of his collaboration with the fondation, including mixed photographs, drawings, models, and all the poetry inherent to ishigami’s work. ‘I wish to think about architecture freely’, ishigami explains. ‘to expand my perspective on architecture as flexibly, broadly, and subtly as possible, beyond the stereotypes of what architecture is considered to be.’
