A TEAHOUSE TO MEDITATE
Takasugi-an| 高過庵

With its archaic simplicity, Takasugi-an (too-high-house) is one of Terunobu Fujimori’s best known creations. It is a teahouse on stilts that stands on a property belonging to his family, now turned into an outdoor museum. Fujimori has designed dozens of buildings in Japan with the same playfulness as Takasugi-an, yet doesn’t consider himself an architect; rather an architecture historian.
