We have a soft spot for triangles and inverted pyramids, which we have been posting on and off in the past years. Hence we were delighted to just discover one more, the Reiyukai Shakaden Temple by the Takenaka Corporation in Tokyo (1975). We just pillaged here and there some pictures online, but would love to learn and see more.

Stealing from the Facebook page of Mario Lupano, officially architecture historian, but much more than that, http://www.iuav.it/Ateneo1/docenti/design-e-a/docenti-st/Mario-Lupa/index.htm, we downloaded and are here re-posting an amazing series of pictures from the Italian radical theater collective, Gruppo Altro, formed in 1972.
So many interesting connections between notational drawings (such as in early Bernard Tschumi), the inter-relation between architecture, choreography and theater, that dates back to Russian Constructivists and the Bauhaus and political engagement. But also Kurt Schwitters (https://nuovoteatromadeinitaly.sciami.com/altro-merz-1973-1974/daniele-vergni-merzbot-perilli-altro-merz-1973-sciami-2018/) and many other sources.
