FAIRY TALE ARCHITECTURE
FUJIMORI TERUNOBU b. 1946
Red School/White School: Fujimori is an example of “Red School”; others: their values
reflect White School
Street Observation Society (ROJO): “On The Road”
Jomon Construction League: group of friends (former Prime Minister of Japan, Avant
Garde artists, Fujimori himself, and more) that build some of their structures together - at
least parts of them
Wood is very important to this architect
Does not have the fundamental training and background required of architects today -
was a professor of architecture (and its history)
40s: started making buildings
RED SCHOOL
Homemade
Rooted in the soil
Raw rock
Weathered wood
Accident
Ornament
Rural, regional
Antithesis of the White School
WHITE SCHOOL
Scientific
Automated production
Precision
More electricity
Sleek, slender
Steel, glass, concrete, composites
No earthiness in it; not rooted
in the ground

Both are great feats of architecture
Tokyo Skytree is shorter
