Famed Japanese architect Terunobu fujimori has a lot of famous peculiar designs. His works give off a surreal animated movie feel with oddly organized spaces. The rickety-looking structures that would be right at home in an older Tim Burton film. At the beginning of his career, he was more into research, and teaching and was publishing exclusively as a historian. Then as Arata Isozaki said, ‘one day he began to create strange buildings as if he had suddenly gone crazy.’. He was 45 when he developed his first design and since then, he has realized projects that have received strong international attention. In his teahouses, as well as in his large buildings, he uses natural materials. He distinguishes himself from common formal languages with stubborn ideas.

Celebrating his career and his lifelong exploration of tea houses, the Stiftung Insel hombroich museum in Neuss, Germany, is presenting the Terunobu Fujimori. Ein Stein Tea House and other architectures exhibition. Developed in collaboration with the Japanese architect, the show displays a selection of projects that focus on the tea houses he planned.
