Editor' Review

Japanese architectures are more than design works, but a combination of philosophy and nature. As the cities make massive strides towards international metropolises, the heritages of ancestors and nature shall not be forgotten. In Japanese architectural designs, both the architectural style and ecological perspective give us beneficial enlightenments.

Introduction

This book collects many small exquisite housing designs to present the appropriate arrangements for small spaces, in which design details and delicate and variant spatial treatment are found. These projects lay stress on Japanese architectures’ grasp of oriental spirit and Zen spaces, following the law of life and try to create suitable indoor and outdoor environments. In addition, the topographies are properly utilized to arrange the activity spaces, thus making them livable, people-oriented contemporary dwellings. These architectures devote particular care to the flow and partition of spaces, which are full of changes — a single room when flowing and several functional rooms when partitioned. One can always ponder quietly in the spaces and immerse into the boundless Zen world. The fantastic oriental charms find their expressions in elegant details, exquisite structures and gentle colors.
