PORTRAIT EXPRESS

Terunobu Fujimori was born in 1946 in Chino, in Nagano province. He graduated from Tohoku University, then studied the history of architecture at Tokyo University, where he submitted his doctoral thesis, Plans of Tokyo during the Meiji Period, in 1979. As director of research, and a specialist in the history of modern Japanese architecture, he set up Kenchiku tanteidan (Club of Detective-Architects) and carried out field surveys on working-class housing and historical cons¬tructions in Japan. In the 1990’s, with the writer and artist Genpei Akasegawa and the illustrator Shinbo Minami, he then founded the Roadway Observation Society, and duly explored new territories in the urban environment. His career as an architect got under way when he was about 40 - a relatively late start for Japan - with the construction of his own house called Tanpopo House (House of the Dandelion).
