A reference book designed to showcase the immense variety of modern Japanese architecture. All projects featured in the book were completed in the last three years. The author is a professor from Fukuoka University, with wide experience in both teaching and designing Over 40 projects showcase the immense variety among Japanese detached houses constructed over the past three years. Some of these houses are designed around the concept of 'intermediate space' featuring courtyards, landscapes, and tearooms. Others take 'how to respond to the environment' as the design theme, employing green building techniques and outdoor insulation, etc; while others are inspired by the question of 'how to implement one's lifestyle', focusing on urban housing, family reconstitution, and variability. Readers will learn about the meaning and the story behind these designs through every project description, experiencing the conciseness which defines Japanese house design. In addition, Xiang discusses various reasons for this diversity. His informative description of architecture and design theory will help the reader understand the methods behind Japanese house creation, and this book also includes useful reference materials, which can be used as a basis for new houses in the Japanese style.
