About the architect:

Yoshimura began his career at Antonin Raymond’s office before being transferred to Pennsylvania in 1940 for two years. He established his own architectural office in the 1940s. His past clients have included the Rockefeller family and the Imperial Household. Yoshimura is one of Japan’s great modernist architects and his homes are often sought-after by collectors.
