East meets West
Yes I agree my obsession with Japanese architecture is evident. Minimalist design with attention to forms and details. The I-House by Kubota Architects in Hiroshima left me breathless.
It feels as if the house takes in the surroundings. The water seems to be part of the house reflecting in the materials.
We can clearly see the influences from modernism and more exactly from Mies. We can see a blend of cultures. Subtle elements of traditional Japanese culture can be seen in the details of the house while the use of forms embrace the values of Modernism.
