This beautifully designed book presents Mariko Mori's Dream Temple project, a full-scale temple inspired by an eighth century Buddhist temple in Japan. Beginning with her pencil, ink, and watercolor drawings, and continuing with architectural drawings, digital images, and video stills, Mori's vision of a contemporary meditative space is a mesmerizing journey into the micro and macrocosmic forces of creation. The finished temple, built out of dichroic glass, an ever-changing, iridescent surface, serves as a metaphor for both the body and consciousness. The book itself is exquisitely produced, incorporating transparent vellum and fine papers to present her drawings, notes, calligraphy, and storyboard plans for how different components of the temple would come together.
