Buildings that embrace

Hiroshi nakamura implants in his architecture special qualities gleaned from the study of living things. the built structures that result take-on the shape informed by his microscopic observations of behaviour, human and otherwise. Being a disbeliever in ‘strong outlines’ that limit and render stiff a building’s form, he embraces the concept of weakness, in which nature is allowed to play a vital part.
