IWATATE, MARCIA, & GEETA K. MEHTA (NACASA & PARTNERS INC., ILLUS.) - Japan Houses

Title: Japan Houses
Description: Tuttle Publishing/Periplus Editions (HK) Ltd., North Clarendon VT, 2005. Quarto; hardcover, with upper board titles and decorative endpapers; 240pp., with many plans and full-colour illustrations. Mild wear; a bump to the board bottom edges. Dustwrapper mildly rubbed and edgeworn; now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Very good. Limited spaces, unlimited technology, a tradition of innovation, and sheer Japanese panache have combined to inspire the stunning homes featured in Japan Houses. Each of the houses forecasts and defines a new trend in residential architecture, reinventing the meaning and use of space, material, and function. Traditional lifestyles are challenged, domestic functions such as cooking and entertaining are moved out of the house into the public domain, while laptops bring work back in. Zen minimalist is juxtaposed with comfortable opulence. Time-honored workmanship is coupled with exciting new materials, resulting in a recognizable style that belongs to Japan, reflecting its culture and craftsmanship, while at the same time being avant-garde and international.
