Takeyama, Minoru (1934–86). Japanese architect. Educated in Japan and the USA, he worked with, among others, Harrison & Abramovitz, Arne Jacobsen, H. Larsen, Sert, and Utzon. He established his reputation with certain buildings incorporating aspects of popular culture in his designs, becoming a member of ArchiteXt in 1971, and developing an interest in architecture as a system of signs and language. His most highly acclaimed buildings were the populist Ichiban-kan and Niban-kan, Tokyo (1969–70), the ‘Renaissance’ Cultural and Commercial Complex, Kyoto (1983–6), and Tokyo International Port Terminal Building (1989–91).
