Now as before, Japanese architecture is very popular in Europe and the western world. This publication provides an overview of its many design concepts and cross-references. Using design examples and interviews, the book presents thirteen current positions.The publication focuses on young architects who take up extremely independent positions within Japanese architecture, as well as on Pritzker Prize winners Toyo Ito and Fumihiko Maki. 

    The book also has detailed guides to great places to build that home and a global photographic survey of the homes we like. As with all of Monocle's books, the guide is a perfect balance of the inspirational and practical. This is a book that should be used again and again; it's about quality of life, a pinch of 'hygge' and making homes where our lives can unfold.
