A unique feature of Ishiyama's career can be expressed ina single word – the self-build project –
by low cost residential spaces in which Ishiyama has been interested. Beside this self-build concept,
Ishiyama has recently began eyeing the theme of agriculture and architecture, considering issues of
self-sufficient energy supply and environmental circulation. Aside from designs intended solely for habitation,
Ishiyama has also designed bridges and streets (or public walks) for festivals and market fairs in the city planning projects.
Perhaps in homage to the Japanese images of tradition, Ishiyama always seek to enrich the townscape not by modifying it,
but by preserving and extending the life of images from the time of the old Japan. Through news media
and publications as well as his architectural works, Ishiyama has tried to speak out about the coming society.
As part of a general tendency to think, plan, and work on architecture, Ishiyama gave an exhibition in the summer
of 2008 at Setagaya Art Museum in Tokyo. Before that, he presented his work at the Venice Biennial (in 1996),
where he received the Golden Lion Prize, and Visions of Japan Exhibition in the Japan Festival held in London (in 1991).
Exhibitions held elsewhere include the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Orleans and Paris in France.
The books Ishiyama has published include Kenchiku ga miru yume (The dreams that architecture see)
– Osamu Ishiyama: 12 Architectural VisionsX(Kodansha, 2008),
SELF-BUILD (Kotsushimbunsha, 2008), Ikinobiru Tame no Kenchiku (NTT Publishing, 2010).
