HD films, digital; 05'07" / 03'59" / 04'02"

Three film portraits of contemporary Japanese architecture: Forest rhythmically foregrounds the remarkable structural design of Ishigami's "KAIT Workshop" while revealing pockets of amorphous work space; Cave demonstrates tiered interior habitation and communication between architecture and nature of Fujimoto's "Final Wooden House"; and Mountain follows the peaks and crevasses of Hirata's "alp" which shape the living spaces of a multi-family Tokyo residence.
