Shinkenchiku 2005:11 Special Issue
Japanese Architectural Spaces
- This reprinted special issue of Shinkenchiku showcases a chronology of 100 Japanese architectural works over time, presented by beautiful photography and drawings with technical data
Spanning from the Asuka Period to the 21st Century, this reprinted special issue of Shinkenchiku
presents a chronology of Japanese architecture from the perspective of ‘space’. With a focus on photography, this issue allows readers to draw relationships between 100 architectural projects and the eras that produced them.
It is often said that architecture does not ‘grow on its own’, and that it reflects human will and the varying combinations of the cultural, political, and economic situations of the time. It is also true that spatial architectural expressions are the result of all human activities and their underlying values and are not something that can neatly be confined to a particular age.
With this in mind, the catalogue presents this accumulation of Japanese spatial expressions to encourage the creation of new histories to contemplate. Beyond being visually provocative, this special book also contains a chronological catalogue of technical drawings to supplement any investigations.
