CONTEMPORARY JAPANESE ARCHITECTURE. 40TH EDT

280,00 kr

Japan's contemporary architecture has long been among the most inventive in the world, recognized for sustainability and infinite creativity. No fewer than eight Japanese architects have won the Pritzker Prize. Since Osaka World Expo ’70 highlighted contemporary forms, Japan has been a key player in global architecture. Tadao Ando's geometry put Japanese building on the map, bridging East and West. After his concrete buildings, figures like Kengo Kuma, Shigeru Ban, and Kazuyo Sejima pioneered a more sustainable approach. Younger generations have taken new directions, in harmony with nature, traditional building, and an endless search for forms. Presenting the latest in Japanese building, this book links this unique creativity to Japan's high population density, modern economy, long history, and continual disasters in the form of earthquakes. Accepting ambiguity, constant change, and catastrophe is a key to understanding how Japanese architecture differs from that of Europe or America. Derived from the XL-sized book, this affordable edition highlights 39 architects and 55 exceptional projects by Japanese masters—from Tadao Ando’s Shanghai Poly Theater, Shigeru Ban’s concert hall La Seine Musical, SANAA’s Grace Farms, Fumihiko Maki’s 4 World Trade Center to Takashi Suo’s much smaller sustainable dental clinic. An elaborate essay traces the building scene from the Metabolists to today, showing how the interaction of past, present, and future has earned contemporary Japanese architecture worldwide recognition.

Hvad er Japandi?

Japansk interiør er populært som aldrig før - og med god grund. Den japanske stilart har nemlig mange fællestræk med stilen i skandivanien.

Japandi bruges om stilen, hvor elementer fra japansk og skandivavisk design kombineres. Her er der fokus på enkelhed og godt håndværk. Brugen af lyst træ, naturlige materialer, rolige farver og design er der, hvor de to stile særligt mødes og forenes.

For os personligt består fusionen mellem det japanske og skandinaviske i at kombinere de ting, som vi elsker allermest ved de to verdener: godt håndværk, minimalisme, farver og ro.
