Japan is becoming a popular travel destination for more and more architects today. With its wide variety of architecture, it is both a source of fascination and inspiration. Over a number of years, the review Detail has been consistently documenting the construction activities which have taken place in Japan, and this book draws on the best of their experience and connections to present and analyse with plans and details the most interesting buildings from various architectural trends in contemporary Japan.

Introductory essays discuss the developments and specific design principles in Japanese architecture. This volume provides a stimulating discussion of current Japanese building in the context of traditional architecture.
