Perfect & that's a nice photo! If you happen to visit Turku, there's also another building worth a visit close by Bryggman's, the chapel by Pekka Pitkänen, built a few decades later.

I would definitely do that. Pekka Pitkänen obituary was the reason I found back Bryggman's chapel. It seems like an incredible building, reminds me a lot of Lewerentz.

This architect is connected to the architect who designed a building I posted on the first page of this thread, I’ve reposted the relevant, related images below:

This architect and the connected architect referenced above both had their work featured in monographic publications published by the same entity.

You have, they apply to this plan as well; however, as you say, the relationship is different.

Another hint: MoMA.

A hint related to the last one: this architect created a representative example.

 · 
jw468

This architect would have almost certain known Kunio Maekawa because their employment with Raymond appears to have overlapped.

 · 
jw468

This architect and Nakashima shared a formative place in their personal histories that wasn't in Japan.

Yes. This architect collaborated with Kunio Maekawa on a project in Japan.

it's an unbuilt prototype by Donald Olsen, which he called the Contraspatial House. Published in Art and Arhitecture in 1948.

Danzalop, it's a fine example of Bay Area post-war modernism. Olsen studied under Gropius, Breuer, and Giedion and worked for Saarinen and SOM, among other offices, before striking out on his own.
