qThis book offers an intimate and readable account of seventeen key individuals through a series of dialogues with the designers themselves. Some of these figures, such as Tadao Ando or Shiguru Uchida are internationally famous, some like Kazuyo Sejima and Shigeru Ban are just starting to receive wider recognition, others are at present little known outside their own profession. Selected both for the clarity of their concepts as well as for the quality of their designs, each is driven by a creative vision and speaks passionately about it.q qCovering more than ninety individual projects, Responding to Chaos is a compendium of ideas and concepts, completed works and projects that span a range from clocks to computer centres, crematoria to cities in the sky. These are organised around four distinct approaches to design in Japan which cut across professional boundaries - Tradition, Technology, Society and Order. It is a compelling read, not just for professionals, but for anyone who is interested in contemporary design, in art, history, culture, technology, anthropology, and what these mean in a modern urban society undergoing rapid change.q--Jacket.Tradition, Technology, Society and Order in Japanese Design David N Buck ...
