Building for a typhoon is the sequel to Rohan Hutchinson's celebrated and out-of-print first publication, 'A brief stroll whilst inspecting architecture.' The Photographic works, created with support by iconic European camera company Arca Swiss, were captured before and after a typhoon that shut Tokyo down in 2019. They document architectural structures and their standing amidst weather variance. 

The interest in the body of work lies in how a city's architectural infrastructure presents cultural, economic, and geographic contrasts. The publication's design embraces these contrasts, shifting the historic and modern spaces into an engaging contempoprary book setting that focuses on the layering of space and materials within a metropolis and its representation in publication format.
This sequel will be limited to 140 copies produced; each copy comes with a collectible metallic print, signed and numbered.

The print selection includes 14 varieties, each an edition of 10.
