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.
Under the label ‘styleless’, dmvA makes every possible style its own. In this way, the office immediately removes every limitation and at the same time supports the concept that timeless architecture does not exist. They act as scenario writers, transforming the programme into a screenplay, spaces into sequences and allowing the building to tell a different story every time. They are no mathematical theorists, but designers driven by emotion, commitment, art and sex, resulting in a plastic, thoroughly detailed architecture in which maximalism is achieved in a minimalist manner.
