LOOKING THROUGH - LE CORBUSIER WINDOWS by Takashi Homma

日本人写真家、ホンマタカシの作品集。ル・コルビュジエ建築の窓を題材とする1冊。通常の建築写真では捉えきれない建築家の視点を追体験する手がかりとして、窓から見える風景に目を向けた本写真集では、スイス・レマン湖の水平線を眺める《母の家》から原色のステンドグラスで広く知られる《ロンシャンの礼拝堂》まで、作者が撮影したル・コルビュジエ建築20点を紹介。ティム・ベントンによる寄稿文では、水平連続窓にはじまるル・コルビュジエによる美しきフレーミングへの探求を振り返る。一般財団法人「窓研究所」、カナダ建築センター(CCA)、ドイツの出版社「WALTHER KÖNIG」による共同出版書。

Takashi Homma first encountered the work of Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in Chandigarh in 2013, while producing photographs commissioned by the CCA, some of which are included in this book. Following that experience, he decided to research and photograph the spatial and perceptual richness of windows in other works by Le Corbusier across the world. His research is part of the Windowology program initiated by the Window Research Institute, which aims to define the position of windows in the history of architecture across cultures—in this particular case, their role as spaces, rather than surfaces, that connect the interior of a building and the surrounding landscape, or the private and the public. An essay by Tim Benton complements Homma’s photographs by tracing the evolution of the concept of windows in Le Corbusier’s work.
