This issue of JA focuses on renovation and adaptation. Featured projects include the Yohji Yamamoto New York Gansevoort Street Store, a modernised farm, the Benesse Art Site Naoshima Office/Honmura Lounge & Archive (formally a supermarket and warehouse), the Tokyo Institute of Technology Midorigaoka No.1 Building retrofit, and the renovation of the Sky House by Kiyonori Kikutake and Norie Kikutake. Also included is a calendar of Japan's renovated architecture. The magazine is full of compelling and innovative renovation projects, a really interesting read.
