    PC Garden House in Japan by Kengo Kuma.

    15th July

    Who feels like a cool drink of water? I felt like I’d had one after looking at Mitsumasa Fujitsuka’s photos of this beautiful Kengo Kuma house. It’s a littler, newer, Katsura. Spare Japanese perfection, just enough brush strokes to render a completely captivating scene. Something about the way the deep eaves and deeper running-board of the house penetrate the garden gives the impression that the rooms inside and the space outside is in perfect coalescence.
