Japanese Modern Architecture 1920-2015 by Seligmann Ari
Japanese Modern Architecture 1920-2015 uses a series of thematic lenses to explain the rich history of Japanese architectural developments from the 1920s foundation of modern architecture to contemporary permutations of modern and post-modern architecture. The book introduces the diversity of Japanese architecture and traces the evolution of Japanese architecture in the context of domestic and international developments. It examines the relationship between architecture and nature and explores various approaches to craft and material. Finally this new book considers tensions between refinement and ostentation in architectural expression.
