tezuka takaharu 'nostalgic future' //
Takaharu and Yui Tezuka explore architecture as an elementary discipline that defines and removes physical boundaries. Boundaries such as roof, floor and wall become the basic media of an architecture that negotiates the relationship between the users and their environment. The Tezuka couple aim for a new definition of architecture: 'Since any kind of form is possible in these days, futuristic appearance is not an issue anymore ... We are seeking a future beyond shape or form. The roof is the most basic element of architecture. Anything with a roof can be called architecture.'
