Description Change this

The best known work of Nobuko and Kameki Tsuchiura is their own home, completed in 1935. The building represents the architects' mastery of interlocking interior spaces. From outside as a massing of white stacked volumes, it may be considered high-International Style modernism, but any student of Wright would recognize his influence, the large window-wall, and the double-height central living space. Wright himself may not have been so complimentary. He expressed disappointment in the Tsuchiuras' embrace of the new movement, writing in a private letter, "[You have] gone over - with [Richard] Neutra - to the gas pipe rail and damper style . . . I am sorry to see the poverty of imagination in you . . ." (from a 1931 letter in the FLWA collection, in Anthony Alofsin, ed., Frank Lloyd Wright: Europe and Beyond, p. 224). The actual house, located in the Meguro district of Tokyo, is still well-preserved today thanks to the stewardship of its current owner. It was designated an Important Cultural Property of Tokyo in 1995.
