Abstract

The author of the article investigates Shin Takamatsu’s works in search of narration studied on the basis of the architect’s buildings along with his own descriptions and texts interpreting his work – with particular reference to Felix Guattari’s analysis. The use of metaphors and other devices of architectural poetics, such as architectural quotations, natural and mechanical inspirations, abstract and iconographic signs and cultural symbols in Takamatsu’s structures equates them with literary works, which has been reflected in the architect’s statements. The artist turns them into a coherent language with a particular narrative.
