About This Book

The first comprehensive study on contemporary Japanese houses designed by established and emerging architects alike. Featuring a collection of homes designed by the main contemporary Japanese architects, this indispensable volume explores the country’s new architectural trends. This book demonstrates the ability of Japan’s leading young architects to express an intrinsic union with the elements of nature through the language of architecture.

Spectacular large-format images capture the essence and spirit of the houses, while informative descriptions provide enlightening context. The book’s format underscores the strength and value of these projects—as well as the masterful skill of the architects behind them.
