Richly illustrated with meditative photography of traditional and contemporary Japanese architecture, this book is concerned with articulating boundaries, and space. Historic and modern Japanese techniques for defining space are profiled, from home design through natural landscaping to the ceremonial spaces of tearoom and temple. An elegant study of Japanese architectural art, with its emphasis on nature and fluidity, the book includes contributions by Kengo Kuma, Sou Fujimoto, and Junya Ishigami.
