Kazuo Shinohara (April 2, 1925 – July 15, 2006) was a highly influential Japanese architect who formed what is now widely known as the “Shinohara School”, which has been linked to the works of Toyo Ito, Kazunari Sakamoto and Itsuko Hasegawa. As architectural critic Thomas Daniell put it, “A key figure who explicitly rejected Western influences yet appears on almost every branch of the family tree of contemporary Japanese architecture… is Kazuo Shinohara… His effects on the discipline as a theorist, designer and teacher have been immense.”
