Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 15:07

In this June 18, 2014 photo, Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto looks at a scale model of a building he designed at his office in Tokyo. A new generation of Japanese architects believes the world has fallen out of love with the 20th century steel and concrete skyscraper. They are pushing a human-friendly alternative that some say have roots in the elegant simplicity of the traditional Japanese tea house. Instead of pursuing monuments that cry out with a message of economic or corporate power, these Pritzker Prize-winning architects are scoring success with a uniquely Japanese reinterpretation of the past. Fujimoto, like other rising Japanese architects, is busy working all over the world, including Germany, the U.S., France and China. Eighty percent of his work is from outside Japan, and half of his staff is non-Japanese.

They are pushing a human-friendly alternative that some say has roots in the elegant simplicity of the traditional Japanese tea house.
