Pure Forms

In the realm of architecture, no one tops the Japanese. Not even the new structures anywhere in the world can compare with what they have already built. And I have only seen a fraction of it. I would need to see more of Japan to fully appreciate its cultural obsession for design. Sure, European, Asian and Middle East cities boast of new developments each year, but the Japanese have always been steps ahead. Everywhere you look there is purity in form, stark contrasts and a near-perfect sense of proportion.
