1979 Kurokawa BD interview

Building Design have scanned in pages from their 1979 interview with the late Kurokawa. All three pages can be found here.

More recently, Charles Jencks has spoken about Kurokawa following his surprise death in October.

"He was a great Japanese original, in the same vein as film director Akira Kurosawa. He was both the man in a dark suit and a pop star, the first Japanese architectural superstar. He enjoyed company enormously. If he had an Achilles heel, it was that he was sometimes too promotional. But he also believed that celebrity should justify itself with good works and a philosophy."

That can be read in full here.
