(1917–80). Japanese architect. He worked in Le Corbusier's studio in Paris (1950–2), and subsequently designed in a manner suggestive of the latter's Brutalism at the Maisons Jaoul (e.g. Yoshizaka House, Tokyo (1955)), although he moved away from that tendency in later years. Among his works were the City Hall, Gozu (1961—in which the office-block supported on trellis-like forms resembled a large bridge), and the Kosizuka House, Tokyo (1976).
