This monograph presents work by Japanese architect Akihisa Hirata and is divided into three parts: Discovering New Form, Discovering New Nature, Discovering New Commitment. According to the architect, new things are an essential part of life. Yet his concept of "new" is not meant as something that is completely unknown, without any connection to the past. Rather, he intends to actualise things that already exist but remain hidden, and in the process discover the essence of living through architecture as a new form of nature, imbued with a previously unseen wildness.
