“I view achitecture as man himself. After all, achitecture is constructed by man. Architecture is a monument to the passion and effort of those who create it. The growth of architecture is derived from the life of its occupants. Considering architecture solely as a machine is cold. As occupants go about their daily lives, their emotions and experiences are stored within the architecture, providing it with warmth and a chance to breathe. As Le Corbusier said, achitecture is a “machine for living.” Man expects to be protected by architecture, whether it be in order to think, to cry, to dance or to sing freely.”

-Excerpt Tamami Iinuma House of Architecture

Published by Post/limArt and designed by Yoshihisa Tanaka, Tamani Iinuma’s House of Architecture presents a photographic approach to the architectural creations by celebrated modernists Le Corbusier and Kunio Mayekawa. Within, Iinuma’s photographs present a visual abstraction of form and subject, where both man as architect and building as structure stand side by side as an interdependent unit in continuous dialogue with its built environ. House of Architecture is an elegant and considered presentation of Iinuma’s imagery, allowing both image and subject further space for engagement within the structural form of the photobook.

The publication includes texts by Thibaut de Ruyter, Yuzuru Tominaga, Tadamoto Oshima and Tamami Iinuma.

All text available in Japanese and English.

Landscape in Modern Architecture

The color palette-like geometric patterns in the images of the “Landscape in Modern Architecture” series were shot in the Dessau Master’s Houses, where Bauhaus masters such as Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee lived, and the Bauhaus Building, where the same masters taught courses on color theory in the early 20th Century. In this series Iinuma takes “corners of a room” as the smallest compositional unit of an urban landscape and combines snapshots with images of corners of rooms, which she shot at Bauhaus. To produce her first artist book “schwarzschild” in 2012, she confronted the approximately 100,000 photographs she had shot in the past eight years and hypothesized that the collection of room corners constitutes a building, and the street running between buildings constitute urban space, the stage of everyday events. She explains that she was concious of Japanese poetry when she selected the images based on the concept explained above. In Hyakuninisshu (100 Poems by 100 Poets), poem that share keywords such as “mountain”, “river”, or “cherry” are juxtaposed to create a grid 10 cards wide and 10 cards high. “Landscape in Modern Architecture”, which takes framed world as “keywords” and connects them to produce an expansive space in nothing less than an attempt to redefine landscape photography.
