In the last decade, a new generation of Japanese architects have begun to create a new kind of contemporary architecture, a fertile combination of the unfettered imagination of the modern architect's atelier & Japan's ancient traditions of handcrafted design. However new these buildings are, their fruitful combination of high- & low-tech & their intimate scale mark them as uniquely Japanese. Hiroshi Watanabe, bicultural architectural observer & correspondent for "Progressive Architecture," has selected nineteen of the most astonishing, compelling, & humorous works & described them in witty essays richly illustrated with 19 full-color & 75 monochrome photographs.
