This issue features works from the Takenaka Corporation and the Takenaka Carpentry Tools Museum, which exhibits the histories of notable ‘daiku’ (carpenters) from different generations, together with the development of tools, techniques, and timber production management. In 2014 the museum relocated to a new building and, with the assistance of contemporary craftsmen, utilised traditional carpentry in the realisation of its structure and spaces. Mark Mulligan writes about craftsmanship in Japanese architecture, while Terunobu Fujimori explains its changes from the early modern era to the present. The issue also presents perspectives from the craftsmen themselves.
