West of Japan, East of Europe

BY DAVE CLOUGH
@ VOL 146 ON APR 26, 2017

Bruno Taut (4 May 1880 – 24 Dec 1938) was a prolific German architect who has written three influential book-length appreciations of Japanese culture and architecture. “West of Japan / East of Europe“, a collaboration between Architect Marcos Capitanio and photographer Dave Clough, is devoted to exhibiting the only existing project that Bruno Taut realized during his three-year stay in Japan, Hyuga Villa (Kyu Hyuga Bettei) in Atami, built in 1936. Both exhibition and exhibit hallmarks a sincere cross-cultural exchange achieved through the deep ponderings of spatial proportions, sentiments and materiality!
