Takeshi Nakasa of Nacasa & Partners, In. a photographic studio in Tokyo, has been . This book features 26 different architectural ideas from Japan. Unfortunately, the ideas presented are quite unique and not quite to my taste.

Takeshi Nakasa of Nacasa & Partners, In. a photographic studio in Tokyo, has been taking commercial interior design and architectural photographs since the 1970s. I prefer things and designs to be more practical for everyday life, rather than marvels of aesthetics and futuristic design.

In the new book from noted authors Marcia Iwatate and Geeta Mehta, Japan Living continues the themes of their highly successful Japan Houses with 30 specially designed houses that transcend function and resonate with spirit. Throughout, a return to traditional materials and design elements is married with such present-day requirements as minimalism, flexibility, a small kitchen, a beautiful bathroom, energy efficiency and electronic gadgetry.

Japanese residential design has evolved as a distinctive response to social, political, and climatic pressures-along with the powerful individual ideas of its architects. Japan Houses presents 28 of the country's finest contemporary houses. Each house is beautifully captured through breathtaking photographs, showcasing the creativity of Japan's leading architects and designers and their innovative use of building materials, spatial concepts, and aesthetic surprise.

  • Arlana
The projects featured in this book are very well compiled and really show how unique and different the Japanese culture is despite all the houses being designed in the same modernist principle. Poetry is evident in nearly all the houses featured and the architects (as well as the clients) have really take the term "less is more" to another level. This book's compilation, however, features houses that are larger than the average houses in Japan and may appeal to certain readers who comment that most modern Japanese houses border on experimental and are not actually habitable, at least by their standards. Houses featured include the H House by Akihito Fumita and the Misonou House by Makoto Tanijiri among many others.

An excellent book and, although full of excellent museum-quality, professional photographs, it provides many ideas for do-it-yourself home renovators and builders. Also, a good coffee table book that will be used less for the coffee table and more for practical applications. A truly wonderful resource for architect students. An idea source.

I have read this book word by word and there is no doubt that the featured projects are a study in serenity. In fact the most intriguing part of the book is the introduction which informs the reader about the Japanese society and the inspiration behind such awe inspiring designs.

Quality of paper and photography is top-notch. However, the write-up for the projects was a little disappointing. Besides being repetitive, on more than one occassion, I found words that were typed twice. And the biggest blunder that one would least expect from a book of this quality and standard - spelling mistake.

On the other hand, if you are in for enjoying the architecture, look no further.
