Contemporary Japanese house

by Zhao Xiang | 28 March 2018
Category: Architecture
Over forty projects showcase the immense variety among Japanese detached houses constructed over the past three years. Some of these houses are designed around the concept of 'intermediate space' featuring courtyards, landscapes, and tearooms. Others take 'how to respond to the environment' as the design theme, employing green building techniques and outdoor insulation, etc; while others are inspired by the question of 'how to implement one's lifestyle', focusing on urban housing, family reconstitution, and variability. Readers will learn about the meaning and the story behind these designs through every project description, experiencing the conciseness which defines Japanese house design. In addition to this, Professor Zhao Xiang from Fukuoka University discusses various reasons for this diversity. His informative description of architecture and design theory will help the reader understand the methods behind Japanese house creation, and this book also includes useful reference materials, which can be used as a basis for new houses in the Japanese style.
