"With its mirage-like, scintillating architecture Isozaki attempted to compensate for the loss of Japanese 'space of darkness.'"
K. Frampton, 2007
"A parti of the sun, moon, mountains and water: the axis of the ‘room of the land’ is directed toward the Nagi San, a sacred mountain; on the right is placed the ‘room of the sun’, on the left ‘the room of the moon’ (aligned with the moonlight shed at 10 pm on the autumnal equinox day, ndr). This a tentative of use the parti which has otherwise become a cliché" A. Akira, A. Isozaki, 2001
