Details zum Buch
Contemporary Japanese architecture has achieved world-wide recognition not only for its highly innovative, often futuristic qualities, but also for its sensitive response to Japan's cultural and physical context in the challenging setting of its increasingly urbanised environment. This architectural guide introduces over 700 of the most prominent examples of this fertile architecture, while outlining its development since the mid-nineteenth century. This updated, second edition of the book - in time for the Tokyo Olympic Games 2021 - presents around 100 new buildings, reflecting the rapid pace of development in the country.
