Overview

Although Japanese architects have to contend with very particular constraints, from tiny plots in crowded urban contexts to ever-present seismic threats, their innovative solutions to the creation of space and stable structures, combined with their close attention to materials, technology and natural light, have resulted in homes that are internationally admired. 

This overview of fifty recently built Japanese houses includes projects by three Pritzker Prize-winners— Tadao Ando, Shigeru Ban and Kazuyo Sejima—as well as by lesser-known emerging architects. Each house is clearly illustrated with colour photographs and plans, and is lucidly described by Philip Jodidio, who has travelled extensively around Japan and is deeply familiar with these projects and their creators. His book is a powerful demonstration of Japan’s enduring commitment to design innovation.
