The second thesis of AA graduate school. This is about Hara Hiroshi. The second thesis was expected to write about something / someone Japanese. There are not so many architects who have explicit theory not only in Japan but also in the world. I wanted to discuss about explicit theorists so that I thought only Hara or Isozaki could be discussed in Japan. Hara, I think, assumed the existence of intersubjective wholeness in terms of phenomenology so that architecture for everyone is possible. This thesis tried to discuss about that by tracing the developments of Hara's arguments in chronological order.
