Openness, expressive freedom, but also awareness of the tradition, history and culture of his homeland are found mingled in the work of Terunobu Fujimori, with a formula that restores the dimension of dream, purity of intention and obsession to the architect's profession
Sengu. La ricostruzione del Santuario di Ise
A truly fascinating photographic account, documenting a ritual lasting eight years, which has been repeated unchanged every 20 years since 690 AD. The images of the 62nd reconstruction of the Ise Shrine, presented for the first time in a book outside Japan, are all this and much more.
The sense of renewal that the whole of Japanese society receives from the reconstruction of the Ise Shrine gives it strength and hope for the future, in the capacity, also for us, to be reborn into the fullness of our lives.
