Japan In Architecture - Genealogies Of Its Transformation


Publisher Mori Art Museum/ Kenchiku-shir

ISBN 9784863585836

Idea Code 19074

As in the eponymous exhibition at Mori Art Museum, this volume examines the characteristics of ancient and classical Japanese architecture in a very ambitious attempt to elucidate the major currents of the nation’s architecture from the perspectives of how its genealogies have spread internationally, the pioneering figures in the process, and the mechanisms behind the continued expansion of these genealogies today. It documents 100 projects across nine thematic sections, including materials, models, documents, and interactive installations. Nine stories which are ultimately hypothetical ones, in hopes that they will lead to new discussions and visions for the future of Japan.
