Japanese Contemporary Houses: Small Anthology of Floating Spaces
Published by LetteraVentidue Edizioni srl
This book contains five essays about the contemporary Japanese house illustrated with a selection of designs by young architects. The domestic space becomes a symbol of the ability to adapt to new cultural and technological patterns.
The designers provide brilliant meditations on the continuous exchange between body and space in a country that readily accepts change and looks forward to the future where buildings are not expected to last forever. Mutually interconnected spaces open to the exterior, and the exterior in turn is re ected within the house.Through its constant references to Banana Yoshimoto's poetic writings, this book speaks to a large audience that includes enthusiasts who want to know more about this uctuating world as well as architects and designers.
