For Japanese architect Toyo Ito, architecture is not so much a work of art but a mirror reflecting the times. From modest beginnings with a small atelier in 1971, he has grown to become one of the foremost practitioners of conceptual architecture, and was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 2013.

This monograph on the work of Toyo Ito covers topics like architecture for a consumption-oriented society, the pursuit of abstract beauty, public buildings and Ito’s 'white period', and allows an unparalleled view into his development and work through the years.
