Japan 2000: architecture and design for the Japanese public
Japan 2000: Architecture and Design for the Japanese Public has been written by Japanese and American architects and designers. In a series of in-depth essays, this lavishly illustrated book presents the architectural and design era of the post-boom 1990s in Japan to a Western audience for the first time. The architecture section focuses on the rapidly expanding public building sector in Japan today. Using some of the most spectacular examples as a basis for their analysis, the authors examine the Japanese government's role in architecture as well as the historical background of postwar building.
