Description
With an emphasis on contemporary and cutting edge architectural designs, this book provides a photographic tour of Japan's museums, houses, schools, shops, hospitals, airports, and chapels. A short profile accompanies each entry, describing the history and noteworthy characteristics of the structure, while Yuki Sumner and Naomi Pollack's text examines the practical and aesthetic challenges the architects have had to surmount. As shown here in hundreds of full color photographs, these daring and often futuristic creations nonetheless maintain the sense of beauty, proportion, and tradition that Japanese art has always favored.
