This monograph covers more than a decade of work by Japanese architect Hiroshi Naito, known especially for the Toba Sea-Folk Museum. The book details fifteen extraordinary projects through photos, drawings, texts and a complete chronology. Naito contributes an insightful, personal essay about his search over the years and in times of crisis to become inspired; to give value to people through the creation of meaningful architecture able to serve society long into the future. Valuable perspectives on his outlook and craft emerge. Other featured works include private houses, Tokamachi Public Library, Makina Museum of Plants and People, and Chihiro Art Museum in Tokyo.
