Oka Hiroyuki, one of the youngest members of the current generation of Japanese flower arrangers, is no exception to the rule. But in addition to that typical, detailed craftsmanship and the pursuit of perfect execution, this young artist is endowed with a refreshing sense of humour and a fantastic eye for witty coincidences. This first monograph contains a wondrous collection of his original work, which only reveals its secrets after close inspection. Hiroyuki Oka makes colourful conceptual art that far exceeds the predictability of perfection.
In the book FRAGMENT, architect Koen Bogaert highlights in 12 articles some remarkable projects from his architectural oeuvre. Texts, drawings and photos (Liesbet Goetschalckx) are given separate pages and can not only be read separately, but also work complementarily. Thus the reader not only gets the (logical) architectural story and choices behind each individual project but also gradually gains an insight into the architect’s general philosophy and aesthetic language of form.
