If you happen to be in Houston, check out this beautiful show at the Museum of Fine Arts organized by Yasu Nakamori of photographs by Ishimoto Yasuhiro, many of which are from an editorial collaboration with Tange Kenzo, who designed an expansion of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in 1974. The exhibition is on view through September 12, 2010 at the Audrey Jones Beck Building. If you don’t make it to Houston, the Yale University Press catalogue is a great addition to your library.
