Takamasa Yoshizaka
location Venice

contributed by lmattozz

In 1955, thanks to a donation from Shojiro Ishibashi, director of the Bridgestone Modern Art Gallery in Tokyo, the Japanese government is willing to build a Japanese pavilion at the Venice Biennale. The architect in charge is Takamasa Yoshizaka, a collaborator of Le Corbusier between 1950 and 1952. The building has much to do with the traditional and the modern in relation to Japanese culture. The square plan is supported by four concrete walls and elevated above the ground. The building is a massive concrete structure that shows its nervatures.
