When Walter Gropius met Japanese architecture: The House of Prof. K Saito by Kiyoshi Seike

When Walter Gropius visited Japan in 1954, he requested to see the “House of Prof K. Saito” designed by Kiyoshi Seike. He described it as a “happy marriage between the tradition of Japanese architecture and modern technology.” Japanese architect/historian Terunobu Fujimori called it the wooden “Farnsworth House.”
