    Founded in 1900, Nikken Sekkei is a world leader in architectural innovation, urban planning and technology. Instrumental in achieving the modernization of Japan itself, the company is both a national icon and a renowned international creator of architectural, engineering, and environmental landmarks.

    This book, edited by Rosa Maria Falvo and published by Rizzoli International, is an elegant tribute to Nikken Sekkei’s remarkable achievements and contributions to world architecture over the last 120 years. A poetic, photographic journey features Nikken’s approach to timeless design: its integrated perspectives, meticulous craftsmanship, and quintessential Japanese traditions.

    The book’s layout is inspired by Japanese typographic traditions and clean spaces, featuring Futura – Nikken Sekkei’s institutional font – and the monospaced Iki mono in several weights.
