So rich and unique is traditional Japanese architecture that it's hard to improve upon. Yet contemporary Japanese designers and architects keep finding new ways to refurbish and take inspiration from the ways of old. Whether it's a pristinely preserved traditional house or a cutting-edge apartment, the best Japanese homes share a love of cleverly designed spaces and warm materials such as wood, bricks, and bamboo. From a thatched roof farmhouse occupied by a Zen priest to Tadao Ando's experimental 4x4 House, Shigeru Ban's conceptual Shutter House, and a beautiful homage to bamboo in the form of a home, this book traverses the multifaceted landscape of Japanese living today. Also included is a list of addresses and a glossary of terms, such as tatami.
Un viaggio fotografico all'interno di alcune delle piu' belle case del Giappone. Case antiche e modernissime. Materiali semplici e avanzati polimeri e laminati. Le parole non rendono giustizia alle splendide foto. Il libro pero' non e' particolarmente tecnico quindi potrebbe deludere chi si aspetta di piu'.
